Peace In The Garden – Poetry

Peace In The Garden
By: Linda A. Long

Lying in the garden
Of peace
And tranquility
Rests my mind
Spent from needless
Worry
Exhausted from
Endless
Planning
Resolved
To shut off
And be ok
With nothingness
It’s ok
To be quiet
And spend time
In reflection
It’s ok
To lye
In a hammock
And daydream
Or just be
Silent in a
Moment of peace
Time doesn’t have
To be filled
With tasks
Life shouldn’t
Be measured
By checking
Off to do lists
It’s ok
To have peace
In the garden
Of your mind
Slow down
Slow it down
Hear the clock tick
But still enjoy
The silence
In your mind
Be in the middle
Of chaos
Without
Being controlled by it
Peacefully practice
The art of controlling
The mind
To warrior precision
Slow down
It’s not easy
Shut off the noise
It forces us
To see ourselves
And hear what
We don’t want
To know
See what we don’t
Want to see
Yet
Once it is heard
Once it is seen
We can make peace
With it
And move forward
Letting go
Of the power
It once had over us
Lye in the garden
With me
Find peace
And tranquility
In this very
Moment
When two souls
Intersection
In perfect harmony

A Special Day | Irene Sheri, 1968

While I believe the painting is of a girl on her wedding day, I really chose the painting to go with this poem for the peacefulness in her face and the roses surrounding her. We all know I really love roses and the special significance and meaning roses have for me. I only wish I could have them in the house without sneezing all day and getting a headache! 🙂
