Where the Garden Grows


Where do we seek our nourishment?

A garden grows not afield but at heart.

To friends we go for sustenance

such willingness on their part.


Together we share the nutriment

Our cornucopia abounds

a harvest of precious sentiment

none less than proportions profound.


This is a place where tenderness will flourish,

an oasis without desert or weed,

a conservatory beyond need for courage,

a connection where the battle weary feed.


Let's corral each others' understanding,

design minus opinion, superficiality or reign,

as tortured beaten souls reach our landing

offer comfort, solace, refreshment to sustain.

    Great write! Oh that we could all enter that garden and never leave. I hold out hope as I have found my garden, despite the struggle it has been to get to it!

                    A garden gives both beauty and nourishment, flowers and vegetables, and a caring heart does likewise. Beauty, in that it brings a smile to those in need, and nourishment of the emotional kind. a nice bit of writing, and I'm sure it was born of a caring heart. Great poem. - Phil A.

                    • Augustus
