This Garden

It’s peaceful out
And gentle wind
Whispers love into my soul
It’s quiet here
And rest I’ve found
Your sunshine careful in its glow
And standing here
I look around
I see my raindrops falling down
As mist rises up
To meet the rays
And lend its nurturing spirit there
So flowers bloom
And buds break forth
In graceful beauty all around
While clouds appear
And lend their shade
From overwhelming bursts of joy
And in this space
Of growth and peace
I look about with star-glazed eyes
On this garden
Small and sweet
That has been given at this time
I heave a sigh
Of thankfulness
And tearfully smile in the glow
As moon meets sun
And stars appear
Then day rises up to touch my soul
And in its wake
I find my heart
Is beating quicker than before
As joy takes over
With sweet light
My happiness, it overflows

I enjoyed this. Perfect for springtime, and for Easter weekend. <3

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!
