Precious Jewels of the Garden
Jewels: precious possessions
of great worth; rare excellence; great durability.
Precious: of great price or value;
excessively delicate; of great spiritual worth.
They are of great calming of
my soul adding to the great wonders of god and nature,
also likes to put things into
They can give you encouragement
and strength because they always just keep on going.
They are pure pleasure how they
zoom in and hover around the feeders and flowers.
Came the spring, I picked a corner and
set my mind to making a flower
garden in the midst of this mass of
weeds unattended through
Winters toughening of the soil.
I tilled, and pulled, and turned, and broke, and bled...
The soil was perfect now...
But, alas! The puppy was fervent in her efforts to help me dig!
So I cut, and I sawed, and I nailed,
and created the most beautiful little picket fence with a gate.....
and planted a tree......
and planted my flowers...
and tended and watered and weeded
and nurtured all through the Spring and Summer months....
To this day, this perfect Autumn morning,
while standing in my doorway,
sipping that first cup of coffee....
I saw the fast-beating wings of that little faerie,
flitting from flower to flower...
was all worth it in that one moment.
