Come Walk With Me

My Wildflower Garden- Mesa, AZ

Come walk with me through the garden
find a place to rest, let’s contemplate
the miracle of these humble seeds
How brilliant flowers can grow
from a tiny dried pod
teeming with life
once its buried in sod

Plant your bare feet in the earth
feel mother’s spirit move through
as worms tickle your toes
Close your eyes and bury your nose
in velvety fragrant petals of the pink rose

Brush your fingers through lavender spikes,
let their perfume stir the air
and heal your soul in restful dreams
where you have no cares

Stay with me in the garden
for here you will find your peace
feeling close to nature’s creator
your anxious heart will be appeased.

  1. What a glorious garden you have! Takes me back to my years of tending a big garden. This year, I am gaining much pleasure from potted blooms on my balcony. Especially loved the birdsong and the glimpse of your pup!
