An open gate invokes


Mother Nature beckons

Come, enter my sanctuary

inhale the fragrant aroma and

the kiss of Sun’s warmth 

where the soul is free to be

still in the quiet peace

away from the disconnect

of the cold concrete jungle

filled with the world’s chaos…

Alas, due to many limitations

I cannot accept her invitation

only gaze and meditate on

a picture of her and

imagine myself there 

yet I am still left with

the ache of sad

Tilling Of The Heart

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Tenderness

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #114 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Like the ground frozen over

in the midst of the bitter cold

so can the heart become also

filled with unnourished dead weeds

leaving the heart in a comatose state

yet when a seed of tenderness is

sown into an unhealed heart it

shall melt the bitter cold

creating abundantly fertile soil

that sprouts new hope filled life

flowing with eternal springs of 

Living Waters!

The Garden’s Grandeur

In Response To:

Eugi’s Causerie Weekly Word Prompt – Laughter – January 13, 2020 – Go where the prompt leads you and publish a post on your own blog that responds to the prompt. It can be words and/or images. Please keep it family friendly. Prompts close 7 days from the close of my post.

Pink and mauve with purple in the background - a perfect combination.

Tears and laughter

dwell in the same garden

growing next to each other

in nourishing harmony

to root deeper and

strengthen one another

for weeping causes a 

deeper genuine laughter

and laughter heals

what was wept 

both equally important

in the cultivating of

the garden’s grandeur
