My Life as a Garden

My Life as a Garden
my garden is the perfect metaphor
for the life i am living
full of potential
a new garden for me but one that was neglected
clearing out the old
discovering hidden beauty
planting the new
observing what grew and thrived in the past
removing what did not survive the winter season
section by section bringing to completion
like a fresh canvas to paint on
so many colours and textures
reshaping and balancing as the garden takes form
St Francis watching over the life in the garden
the birds, the bunnies, the frogs and the bees
the rain and the love nourish the garden
and there is always a freshness in the movement
movement of the sweet ocean breeze
my garden is a blessing
and this blessing wants to be shared with you please
