What We Learn in the Garden

we plant seeds

some are delicate
others are hearty

some take
others don’t

some grow and blossom
with little work
others require
constant attention

a few whither
and die

such is the nature
of relationships

  1. True indeed. It makes you feel kind of helpless almost though, because there is a kind of inevitability about it. Let’s hope there are plenty of the seeds that grow and flourish. Lovely poem Inky ❤️
