#291 – Operation

for Sunday Scribblings


There is something about your sweet earth
and the things you cause to grow in it
There is something about the trees, the birds, the air
You have operated on my heart.


I find you close as I tend the plants we chose together
you drawing me in love to colour, form and leaf
There is something about the warm spring sun on my face
You have operated on my heart


On my knees in the garden
tending to plants
there a little part of heaven kisses the earth
and you operate on my heart.

  1. Your poems are always so deceptively simple..I found myself soothed by the thought of you tending your flowers..it's an inner understanding and contentment perhaps..Jae

  2. Gardening can be so satisfying especially when you feel that bond to the earth as you sense your place in the grand plan that you so eloquently express here.
