In the Garden

 rain on roof

When I hear the rain,

pounding on the roof,

I rejoice, knowing,

 you will soon be in the garden,

planting flowers,

hands covered in dirt,

and your heart filled,

with a song,

I love your smile,

your joy,

You have never looked so beautiful,

with your old clothes on,

and your sun hat,

Eve in the Garden of Eden,

never looked so good.

When the sun caresses your cheek,

plantingI want to be there.

In the garden together,


red and yellow tulips,

always returning,

beauty refusing to die,

miniature rose bushes,


later some tomato plants,

a little mulch.

If it rains on us,

let it pour!

We can get soaked together,

laughing, and dancing,

in bare feet,

acting like school children,

throwing mud!


and falling,

in love,

all over again,

let it pour.

two in the rain

  3. Soon…very soon 🙂 I loved reading this …it reminded me of being a child and playing in the rain…and it made me question “When was the last time I played in the rain?” As it may rain here today I might have to go see if I can find my inner child! Thank you 🙂 ❤

  4. Oh thanks so much for making me smile with your writing and photos. Love them. Thanks also for popping in to my blog again, and liking my piece, The Auditions. Do pop over to Creative Frontiers where they are hosting my regular music blogs twice monthly, if you can , and let them know what you think of my pieces by leaving a comment on each for me (them).
