Her Rocky Garden

Broken rocky garden, overgrown, torn
Bending her splintered hope, divided pain
Token throwaway cuts, discarded scorn
Spending relief's pennies, enticing rain
Spoken dulcet song, kindness softly born
Tending today's seeds for tomorrow's gain
Still plant optimism in future Mays
Will grant definition to her last days.

I like how this poem moves from 'broken' to 'healed.' Nicely done, Michelle. Here's to a heavenly garden. Best wishes, Gershon
