In My Garden

In My Garden

Tiny green tendrils

Push through the earth’s dark, rich skin

They seek the sun’s rays


Roses spread petals

Accept dawn’s kiss with a blush

Welcome the morning


The sweet scents of Spring

Waft o’er my smaller garden

The ladybugs dance


Beads of dew roll down

Daffodils’ yellow trumpet

Dawn’s first offering


My Peonies are here

Four Full bushes of color

Entice the insects


Dandelions wave

Fluffy heads of seeds that fly

Wind-driven nuisance


Butterflies flit by

From bloom to bright bloom gently

A young girl follows


Beloved begonia

Tropical transplant that thrives

Shielded from sun’s rays


Red Azaleas thrive

Paper thin petals float up

The bees buzz along


Double inpatients

Bloom rose-like in petaled tiers

Belles of the garden

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
