Garden of Love



Garden of Love
Please plant the new seeds and garden with me
And help prune the roses below my elm tree.
Together we'll turn soil, and toil in the sun
With many hugs and kisses to make this fun.
We will see what Mother Nature's love does send,
As this labour of love makes us more than friends.
So please share with me on your hands and knees
As we cultivate, nurture and plant our love to be.

IntroductionForgotten are the times the tick of a clock once chimed sobering sounds that caressed my hearts nightly dreams. As I awaken to the touch of light that burns upon a candles wick flickering my words for all to see.

These are my new poems I have written in the quiet of my night, forever wished away in a writer’s pain. As I strive to write that perfect poem that, my soul desperately seeks. Then and only then can my words rest upon a sleep. more…
