In the Garden
In the garden, hands pat fresh soil around a seed.
Just a little water, feed, and overtime…
A bud sprouts, surrounded by family of weeds.
Pluck the weeds. Just a little water, feed and overtime…
Time passes and a rose struggles to blossom.
It’s a little dull. Just a little more water, feed, and…
A browned petal falls from the, now, tall stem.
Just a little more water, feed, and…
Love. For him. For her.
The remaining petals regain their radiance. The beauty is undeniable.
Just a little more…
Hands pat fresh soil. She is viable now. The gardener turns to walk away.
Perfect. No need to stay.
In the garden, she speaks.
My love. I am ready.
My love. Take me with you.
Happy Valentines Day!
