IN MY MOTHERS GARDEN

In my mothers garden
by R. S. B.S


Stand with me for a moment
and feel the gentle breeze
as we look across the beauty
In my mothers garden

Like an artist with a brush on a canvas
She lays her hand to the ground
Every little seed is placed with care.
Only in her minds eye
Does she see what will be--
yellows, purples,
Reds, and greens
Orange and brown
whites and pinks
short and tall,
fat and thin
So many different things
As far as you can see.
This is her canvas.

Butterflys dance
Birds swoop and sing
Bees buzz
and music rings as the breeze
Blows through the chimes
In my mothers garden

Something peaceful comes over you
As you walk along the garden path
Among the flowers a rustling you hear
Out darts a baby bunny
And with a wiggle of his nose
And a brief glimpse of his white puffy tail
Hes gone!
Where you ask
To some other hiding place
In my mothers garden.

Breathe deep and smell the many fragrances
Which tickle your nose
Lavender and thyme
Daffodils or hostas,
Its like a pefume factory
And if I were a bee I would be
Oh so confused!
Which flower to go to?
For they all smell so good
In my mothers garden.

Silver hair and weathered hands
Yet soft and warm
She comes to greet you
With a smile and a twinkle in her eye.
"Come sit with me
and enjoy my dream
Ho how blue the sky
and how white and fluffy
The clouds are today
Can you hear the woodpecker
Off in the woods beyond my garden?
Can you feel the mist from the fountain?
Hold my hand and close your eyes
For you are safe here
In your mothers garden."

" I may be able to brush away the pain
Maybe only for a moment,
I may be able to wipe away the tear,
But I will not always be here
When you fall .
So when you feel weary
And fear fills your heart
Come and look at the deep red rose
Or the tall green pine
and feel me all around you
Way deep in your heart
May you find peace of mind
In your mothers garden."
