All is well in my garden

image

Dry bracken and barren branches
Fallen leaves moldering
And vines annexing new terrain
Surviving lack of care

All went still and silent
When you said goodbye, my love,
And there was only gloaming
So the roots had to go deeper
To nourish themselves from the core

But the irises
Broke through the snow today
Arising heads
From long forgotten intentions
And a source more enduring

All is well in my garden, my love
All is well.
