Where grows my garden

Only one flower blossoms

My bleeding heart weeps

~

My bleeding heart weeps

Needy hands planted garden

Just one love survived

~

Just one love survived

Perhaps garden too distant

Miles separate hearts

~

Miles separate hearts

Garden watered with salt tears

One thorn’d rose flourished

~

One thorn’d rose flourished

Amid garden’s parched petals

Love, forget me not

No Summers Left

https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/2017/05/27/wordle-301/

The cold snapped, overlapping summer’s season,

Seeped frigid blue into my limbs, made stiff—

Even as it crimped the garden grass

Where futile floral efforts lay brittle.

Chilled mist cracked voice each time

I breathed, breaking hymns to God in half;

As I skipped stones across the lake—

Now a mirror of ice which proved me old,

With no more summers left.

Scampering Thoughts

Thoughts scamper here, there

Rabbits bounding through garden

Foraging for greens

Among mental overgrowth

Weeds, berry brambles, kudzu
