Secret Garden

How cool  ~
The secret garden. 
I have a key. 
Do you wanna go ?

I wonder   ~
What should we wear? 
How should we dress ?
When should we go ?

I'd really like to stay.
That is, if it's ok ?
I would plant flowers everywhere.
With little gnomes here and there.

And make it welcome 
Just for my fairy friends ~
That would come by to say hi.
And maybe plant a fish pond.    

For the little Koi to  come play.
From the babbling brook near by.
Fragrant flowers for the bees passing by.
But most of all .

Within this place I'd fined
Tranquility with peaceful grace 
So every morning before  I start.
I'd visit that secret garden within my heart.

    That was really beautiful, I can see it as a garden scene but then take it deeper Then you have that inner whisper, that every one is unknowingly looking for. Anyhow, I really got something out of it. thank you for this.

    Very nice Debbie... your secret is no longer secret... I'll bet somebody has found (or soon will find) entrance to the secret places in your heart! Terry

    We all need a secret place where we can retreat and find tranquility. Your question on traitor, I can only say it was a teacher but not who you mentioned.

    Reminds me of the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Brooklyn where they have a pond and lake full of fish. Peaceful and enjoyable work here. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    I love to come to your garden...we should wear white lace dresses and have flowers in our hair, so butterflies can pitch on our heads. Beautiful write! Happy Thanks Giving to you and yours! Hugs
