Camera:NIKON D60

1.  A perfect garden

Fluid, expanding, changing

Just like the seasons.

2.  Thou Great Gardener

Who sends early and late rain

Bless us as we toil.

3.  Bless our toiling hands

With Heaven’s sun and sweet dew

Else we plant in vain.

4.  Who loves a garden

Reaps joy and wholesome harvest

His Eden he keeps.

  1. All wonderful haiku! 🙂

  2. Lovely picture. I wish my garden were like this.

  3. Thank you for your appreciation. You make me push my pen harder besides incorporating images of my garden to blend in the poetry.
