My Yard is Alive in June

Butterfly leads my eye to other marvels Marigold laughs, seeing my interest I walk to the bee balm and visit with the bumblers They are in a frenzy, competing for pollen My yard is fully alive in June Dragonflies nearly take off my head Silent gliders, reminding me that spirit is here Orbs would be seen if I was taking photos, but I am not. I can feel the energy of my ancestors Their approval of my four gardens, Vegetables pushing through the soil Ready for picking and plucking The sun caresses my neck as I bend forward To collect my bounty from the earth Wind reminds me she is here, Eager to entice my leaves to dance.

It appears your garden is filled not only with beauty, but also with grace. A lovely verse! :)

My gardens are so wonderful, I cannot imagine life without them. I have three of them.

Wow, Caren, a great write for the senses. On a supernatural note, I've been hearing angels for 8 years. They love to sing. I thank the Lord for Him sending them my way. :)))))

I am so excited that you also know of the angels, and understand fully what I am speaking of, Regina. It is a terrific world!
