Well of Wishes

Well of Wishes Sullen skies have lifted The final raindrops have fallen The sun is smiling joyously above Nature’s boudoir buds in golden sand Ivy is crawling up the garden walls Deeply colored carved petals of emerald Wild periwinkles weave their magic Along the royal cobblestones of grey Before the pond stands a wishing well That dried up long ago, when new life rose Transparent butterflies floated to the top Void of color from darkness, freed from captivity Sailing in a flight of purity, wings dusted in gold Keepers of millions rising from the ashes unfold Returning the gardens soul, restoring its beauty Raising the willow of wisdom to oversee its growth By the living water of sparkling falls Eye pools, windows of sight to the soul Where the fractured land finds healing And the wishing well has transformed into The well of Hope And Wishes are laid to rest Carole Cookie Arnold 07/07/2012
