My Garden

The garden of my soul arid,
Cool showers of rain it longed;
The flowers all withered and dry
Forever thirsty and hungry...

Once, I watered it with love,
Found the flowers aglow...
The desert turned fertile;
Its struggles all futile...

The leaves whispered to me -
Thousand tales of amuse;
The flowers smiled at me
As alive they became...

Life needs nothing, but love,
To burgeon in its grove...
Loving droplets of water
Is all it needs to prosper!!!

      No, the picture is courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net. Even though there are few in my collections too, this one seemed more apt. So I used it.
