A Lady and Her Garden
This lady misses her garden
and longs to draw the Spring
back from its sleep -
the birds, the warmth, the green.
To get her hands in the dirt,
to pick the pole beans,
to watch the leaves unfurl, the flowers bloom,
to taste the peppers, lettuce, cukes,
to see small hands grow as the season moves.
This lady truly misses her garden.
She must wait.
The ground will rest
when He bids it work again.
Spring arrives March 10, 2010.
