    In the garden I call my heart
    Roses blood red symbolize
    the life blood that flows
    within.

    The tulips that pop up in
    springtime with their rainbow
    hues mark rebirth and good
    news.

    Creeping ivy that has both joy
    and pain like memories of heart
    break that traverse on secret
    journeys like our veins.

    Annuals and perrenials that
    sleep in winter like the coveted
    warmth of summer it's essential
    ever present but not visible to
    the naked eye.

    Grass that grows that feeds the
    garden and the soul, soaking
    up sunshine and water. Lush
    green a pleasure to walk on
    tickling in between our toes
    if we dare walk barefoot.

    In the garden called my heart
    flowers grow, opening and
    spreading when the sun has
    finally risen. Free from their
    natures prison.
    And like eyes at night they sleep
    and slumber...they close

    Our hearts also open up to light
    and close to dark if we have the
    will...
    In the garden called my heart,
    it awaits the cool reviving
    drizzle that feeds the garden
    and is love.

    In the roots of the garden hidden
    treasures of generations unborn
    and love torn it must rest in the
    darkness until like the magic of
    Spring this beatiful thing that
    burst forth to join the birds of
    a new season and sing and
    sing
    and sing!
    In the garden...

    Just droppin in...

    How sweet it is to be love by you all...:D Getting ready for the last part of my journey surgery...ugh!!!!!!!!! But, I am holding on, I promised that I would stop by and drop something or read something when I was able to sit up...Doctor Destee's orders, I was feeling rather depressed having to go through all this pain and prodding and needles all the way to your spinal column so I came back to a place that would make me forget the pain and make me feel all betta, even though for just a lil while. Surgery day approaches but I shall be here as much as I can....until then
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
