This poem compares walking in a perennial garden to spiritual growth.


Walking daily in
The perennial garden
I see changes.

Where is the
Beginning and
Where the end?

Snow covers the
Ground in winter
Snow melts; the
Garden looks forlorn,
Forsaken.

I walk on in the perennial garden.

Sun warms the
Earth; plants
Come alive;
Green shoots sprout
From the ground.
Today I see
Daffodil blooms;
Tomorrow I see
Withered flowers
On the stem;

Simultaneous
Beginning and ending;
Alpha and Omega
Cannot be separated.

I continue to walk among
The perennial beds.

The garden becomes
Lush with spring
Rains; buds appear;
Lupines, lilies,
Peonies unfold
In riotous colours.
The ground of
Nature's being
Unfolds in glory.

This is not
Beginning nor
Yet the ending;
It is journey.

Summer leans into
Autumn, giving
Bronze, red, and
Gold glow; plant
Leaves die back;
Ground once more
Exposed, opening to
Receive seeds for next
Year's resurrection
Of the land.

Alpha and Omega;
Beginning and end.

I walk daily in the
Perennial garden,
Journeying on.

Judith Lawrence

Archangels Speak by Margaret Doner

Are angels real, or imaginary? Can they really save your life or intervene in your destiny? If they are real, can we talk to them like we would a good friend? Do they hear our th..
