My Garden

The garden that I made has a few places of shade

Tall trees cast a shadow that protect fragile plants that cannot handle the rays the sun blasts

The shade plants mostly green, it is hard for them to be seen without the growth the sun brings

Big flowers full of color, bold, in many hues

It makes me sad for the others, that go on without a clue

Because color makes the garden desired by almost every buyer

Who want to view all the wonderful hues, covered in dew

Red, blue, and pink, I understand how they think

My Garden in Spring

Yellow in spring, is a fabulous thing

Sparking new growth, and the outcome all want most

A long stem, with a marvelous bloom

Opening majestically was always the flower’s destiny

The plants in the shade, need watered some more before the color within them can be born

I am confident they have a vibrant future in store

I think I will cut back a branch of that tree

So everyone can see

how spectacular they become

with just a little bit of sun

Genesis 1, NIV

11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

Genesis 2, NIV

Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
