Lost feelings can be found when you stop and smell the roses. Finding your path in life can be as simple as planting the flowers. Sometimes depression, sadness, or the feeling of being alone can be easily fixed by just weeding the problems. The farther you are away from your garden of life, the harder it is to take care of. If you are having issues of any kind... stop, take a moment and evaluate your life’s garden.


Lost, then found by secrets bound
the skies are much the same.
My timings off, but then I scoff
at changes rough and tame.
I traveled far, beneath the stars
the opposite of home.
I think of friends and in the end
I ponder all alone.
The dreams I keep, when not in sleep
walk with me every step.
I use those visions, for decisions
until there’s nothing left.
The days go by, till I can fly
back home to friendly ground.
I seek my space, as I retrace
old paths to lost and found.
My garden needs, more water, seeds,
neglect has made me stale.
It’s time to pause, review life’s cause
and find my holy grail.
Michael Charles Messineo, Singapore, July 2008

Life's garden can indeed be a holy grail. And to be able to tread its
worn paths refreshing. rcs

I especially like the last paragraph -- guess we all need to stop and refresh -- or we will definitely lose our way. We're in such a hurry to get nowhere at all. Susan Williams

It is pretty much hits the nail on the head. Lucky for me, my garden is in full bloom.

Love gardens, flowers blooming roses. Cheerfully seen, they do give an uplift to me. Need tender love and care throught their lifetime too just as we do.
