Our Garden, a poem

Photo credit Sue BrothersO Sacred Space with
birds, bees and butterflies
and playful sounds and shades
of sun, wind and rain!
We are embraced by a happy
and holy atmosphere of flowers,
fragrance and fantasy;
blessed by an abundance of
naturally ripened fruits of the earth:
bananas, oranges, lemons, grapefruit,
leeks, kale and onion greens!
We see the sky, breathe in
fresh air, walk on green grass!
Rain or shine, we always have
flowers for our Holy Shrine and
gifts for sharing with our friends!
