Raking back the leaves to dig Roots that would soon become Brilliant displays of vibrant hues Creating music in the wind song With flamboyant heads swaying Dancing softly like generous hopes Assorted dreams drifting gently Picking cornfield beans, shades of Olive mysteries, sent to bring richest Wisdoms and warmth, miracles Buried beneath the slow caress Of a noon day sun who gives back Flavor and fulfillment, faith in Him Who holds the answers to a prayer Blending flour, lard and milk together Forming dough into portions that know The scrumptious aroma of serenity Soothing the senses with tender truths Scraped from the bowl of inspiration Thriving with the stir of desire, a fire Passions aroused by the touch of thanks Embracing the heart with assurance that Feelings will survive the worst of life Overcome the pain and chaos of disruptions Flee anger, bitterness and resentment To learn more about love and contentment The precious joy that comes from knowing A existence filled with love that is unconditional Grandma’s legacy bequeathed me ambitions Lessons in devotion, trust and commitment Reminders that every dream is worthwhile Each hope is a prayer that sings to heaven With faith that real love leaves a footprint Patterned after the finest treasures, inspiring Visions brought about by God’s hand on me Strand Completely New Poem 21 Poetry Contest Sponsored by Brian Strand August 12, 2020

Your lovely poem made me think of my own grandmother's beautiful garden and some of the Polish dishes she made really did have the "scrumptious aroma of serenity." An amazing write, Regina, and anew fave for me! Best wishes in Brian's contest. Hugs, carolyn
