Once, flowers were placed in gun barrels
As a form of protest.
Today, a garden is needed
To keep the soil of the meadow
Soft enough for all feet to walk upon
We grow in common ground.
Share the dirt.

Beautiful flower picture and poem. Well done. Followed you by e-mail
Your poem shows that so mich can be in said in just a few powerful words👍
Little moments of calm in your words. Thanks.
Sigh. Thank You. So lovely.
Gardens are obviously needed!!
My favorite lines,
“We grow in common ground.
Share the dirt.”
This says so much with few words.
Thank you for the spirit of unity.
Sweet Elan! Please read my latest post -Unique Blogger Award. I’m only interested that you read the post as it is partly directed to you. Thanks.
This is fantastic! Love it!
Wonderfully positive words for our troubled times. I love the primary colors in the picture.
This is a really beautiful, poignant piece. You say so much with so few words, each lexical choice serving a purpose – I especially liked your use of ‘barefoot’, as it invokes a sense of nature, but also a sense of gentleness/softness/safety as they are able to walk that way without getting hurt or cut. The picture is great too; I love the vibrant colours! 🙂

One planet. One people. One day.
Oh! What you can do with lens! It makes love through the viewer and your prose seduces thoughts that resonate!

LOl. No. Just hard work. Although, sometimes I like to pretend. Thanks so much!
Incredible. Sent shivers down my spine! What a great message from such beautiful words
How do you write so well? Are you a magician?
Today a garden is needed indeed. Short and so meaningful.
This was really good. “Today, a garden is needed”, aint that the truth!
You have crafted something so moving with so few words! Envious of your efficiency, it’s beautiful.
