“The Sweet Blossoms’ Soul” Poetry by Linda Willows


Close to my heart lives a garden that I tend,
Filled with lilac and rosebuds; perennials lush in each bend.
Each with a scent that tenders still as I touch
The sweet blossoms’ soul, the petals’ own blush.

My garden grows so close, that it catches each tear,
Then lifts, adores and sheds to all flowers near.
Life and Its’ rain drops flow with nourishing pour
As my garden is tended, near my Hearts’ gladdened core.

  1. That’s a very lovely poem…

    Loved the initial part the most
    “Close to my heart lives a garden that I tend,
    Filled with lilac and rosebuds; perennials lush in each bend.
    Each with a scent that tenders still as I touch ”

    Kudos.

  2. Absolutely beautiful, tender and gentle … and one of my favorite colors, also. Your imagery is so vivid that I can smell and feel the petals. Just lovely, as always, dear friend. ~ Love, Julie xox
