Soon my Friends, Soon

Once in a while you can find 
a quiet spot in the garden 
on a warm summers day 
with all of God's creatures 
getting on with there day, 
and you just marvel 
at the wonder of it all. 

You can hear the birds, 
high in there nests, 
tending to their young ones.

You can sit for hours, 
watching butterflies and bees.
hopping from bloom to bloom.

You can feel a gentle breeze 
flow softly across your face, 
and bringing with it, 
the smell of fragrant hostas you planted,
for just moments like this. 

You sit and look across 
the haven you've created 
and feel the tranquility 
and joy it emits.
While listening to the music 
that Mother Nature provides, 
you begin to notice the diversity 
in each one of your precious treasures.

It's moments like this
when you close your eyes.
and capture the moment,
to bring back to mind,
when the garden's gone bare.

Soon my friends, soon,
the garden will flourish,
and we'll be back on our knees,
looking for signs 
of our returning treasures.

Soon my friends, Soon.
