Herbal Garden

Now...I well know
all material possessions
are life's luxuries.
The spice in life
comes in a herbal garden.
Sometimes sweet or bittersweet.
When I grow old,
hanging onto memories
and things of lasting value.
I'll keep my bed-side bible,
a few favorite books
and family photos.
Having a strong faith,
something near by to read
or seeing my families' smiling faces
makes me happy and at peace.

"So don't be anxious about tomorrow.
God will take care of your tomorrow too.
Live one day at a time."(Matt 6:34)

Born on October 24, 1939, I was one of seven children. I am now a mother of seven grown children, grandmother of 18, widow, and writer for the past 50 years mostly poetry. Day care provider of many years, now retired. Three poetry books published, but no longer in print, several little poem books self published. Published in local newspapers, several magazines and daily devotionals. My faith, family and writing poetry has brought me thus far.
