GARDENS.

Gardens come in all shapes and sizes,
From the ridiculous to the sublime!
From window boxes on high rise flats,
To landscaped estates developed over time...
Each one has one thing in common -
Though it may not be obvious you know - a desire to create and patience to watch it grow.
From the first sunflower seed sown by a toddler,
So many people have been hooked!
How many have seen down through the years in their imagination,
As upon their bare soil they have looked?

Today it's become fashionable to have a 'makeover' -
Done in a couple of days...
Such people as Titchy and Dimmock come around,
Turning a tip into something bringing 'Ooohs' and 'Aaahs' of praise.
Along with them both comes Tommy, long-suffering and full of good cheer,
With his sidekick Will - and a camera crew to catch the delays!
What can I say about such gardens?
They are all done with such pizzazz!
No real history before them I guess,
But if I had the money I'd say "Yesazz!"

Still... I wouldn't swap my garden,
With ALL its weeds and clutter.
For it's mine and in it I meet with God,
He doesn't nag at me about its state, or under His Breath mutter!
He KNOWS my heart, He KNOWS the claims upon my time,
He simply Opens up His Arms and Bids me Rest and write my rhymes.
His Heart is simply Creation, in ALL its Wonderous forms,
He's Gifted people down through the years with the same desire and love...
Eden MUST have been WONDERFUL, a sight to Truly Behold,
Yet... TO GOD, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GARDEN OF ALL
IS FILLED WITH HAPPY SOULS IN HEAVEN ABOVE!!!
