Shadows of Eden




So I return
There
To that place
Where
It all began…
For somehow
In the pruning,
The plucking and picking
I sense a greater plan
And somehow in the hurt
The heat and the dirt
Of simple
Sun-kissed sod
There is a feeling
Of beautiful healing
Alone
In a garden
With God

…and we behold life with renewed eyes
For a garden is earth’s humble paradise
