The years have robbed them –
of youth, strength, seedlings, soil.
Yet still they stand,
hand in hand,
heart in heart,
staring down the approaching winter
with eyes bleary but wise.
Theirs has been
a rising above,
a conquering of Kingdoms.
And on the brink of leaving this for the next,
they raise shaking heads
to be crowned at last
WOW! Great poem, Melody–God bless you today. love, Caddo
Thank you Caddo! (Don’t those flowers look like an elderly couple?)
I had to come back and look–yes! you’re right!!
Really precious, Melody! This would be great as an anniversary card! 🙂 God bless you!
Thank you Debbie, for your continued encouragement. Weary souls drink that up like nectar, you know – there is such value in spreading joy. Just like a sweet fragrance! 😉
Wonderful! And this barely says it. Your ability to see human significance in humble garden things, is an amazing gift of insight for you and us.
Thanks Maria – that humbles me. I just seek to see with open eyes – I’m so glad that all of you are along for the ride, too! 🙂
The Lord surprises us all with what goodness He brings!
That is SO true!
