A Flower Pocket Garden
In the dark and quiet moment of a rainy morning,
There is some sunlight to be found inside my heart,
And although I’ve encountered much that’s disappointing
There are still some miracles that set a day apart.
The planned things, have their value and their order
So solid and secure with each week mirroring the last,
But then a flower begins to bloom inside your pocket,
Where you never thought to find it, as you sowed your seed on grass.
If you carefully reach in and touch the petals and the stem,
You will see it’s as real as those well-known gardens pruned before you,
Where rose bushes do not change and marigolds are playing with light,
This flower is impossible, yet it lives to let you know you’ll make it through.
Love shows itself sometimes in brash and boasting elegant bouquets.
It comes with chocolate candies and cards and midnight dates.
But on those rainy mornings, it might come in such an unexpected way,
by flowering in your pocket, bringing hope of an unseen better fate.
