Dream Garden

I wandered

into a decaying garden

not knowing what or who

rendered it abandoned

 

Tender leaves

once green with life

now shriveled and

withdrawn

 

I knelt

and whispered a prayer

this fate would not befall

my own garden of ideas

 

Young dreams

still needing

sun and rain

to grow

 

Planting does not suffice

gardening requires

persistence and

forgiveness

 

Then I saw a tiny bloom

took in its subtle fragrance

though fragile

it announced

 

A latent garden is

abundantly fertile

glance around and see

flowers can thrive among the decay
