The Gardener

The Gardner

The patient gardener knows
weeds will sprout and spread
mimicking the flowers
growing in the flowerbed.

He's aware of deadly forces
and is ready to deploy
his arsenal of weapons
so his plants they can't destroy.

When his flowers flourish
he steps aside to look
at his prized possessions
for he knows the toil it took.

The gardener always strives for
nothing less than perfection;
his flowers are like children
enhanced by his affection.

Just like the gardener
God is our caregiver;
His love perpetually flows
out of heaven like a river.

He keeps a watchful eye
on those He does cherish,
for without God's provision,
we too would surely perish!

My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
