Wide Minds*

Hemingway wrote that
he grew up in an affluent town
of “wide lawns and narrow minds.”
The author who quoted him
expressed the worthy goal
of “narrow lawns and wide minds.”
My take is that would be
better than just fine
as a metaphor and to help
the environment to shine
and would fit with the little
dune grass yard of mine
and my hope and desire for a
broadly expanding heart and mind.
