Weeding Time


Forgiveness returns again,
quietly like a sensitive friend,
resurfacing in my untended garden
full of weeds of disappointment.

Her blooms bring relief,
soothing balm to old wounds,
gratitude in future days of growing
not focused on past hurts.

Time to pull those bitter weeds
and restore natural healing powers
with perennials of truth, beauty and hope.
reaping a harvest of peace.

Beautiful, Lin. I wonder why it is hard sometimes to pull those weeds.

Lovely poem...

I like the idea that forgiveness returns like a sensitive friend.
Yes, she is a friend, helping us to pull out those bitter weeds.
