I HAVE A GARDEN

I have a garden in my mind
in which I walk sometimes.

And in the glowing gold
of a setting sun
a rose of courage climbs
and finds its way along the fence
that protects and holds my heart.

And all along the walk of love
the flower of peace makes its start.

A mockingbird in all its joy
sings deep within the night.

And rest comes gently drifting down
and settles oh so lightly
upon my grateful heart serene
and I spend my tranquil hours
within the garden of my mind
among the fragrant flowers!

  7. Sounds like a beautiful place.
    There is a garden in my mind
    where only one thing grows
    I pick the leaves and dry them in the sun
    Roll them up
    and alter my reality

    That probably explains alot
