A man stepped out into the sunlight. Dawn had just came about, and then this person felt
his feet upon the grass. Unfortunately, there were many weeds scattered throughout the lawn.
The man toiled the soil, yet remembered the beauty of the Earth. Through love and care, this
man felt connected to the land, and remembered that he could do great things with his hands.
Grating accoutrement on a lawn might be troublesome, but this person refused to let the weeds
be a burden within his “grate garden” (pun intended).
