The gardener

The barren earth

Lifeless n arid

Full of delta-like

Veins n crevices

Dry red and molten

Begged for succor

A gardener came along

Took charge and

Tended it

Showering

Loving care

Life-givingĀ  water

And nutrients.

Suddenly the earth came to life

Under his benign presence

Little creatures peeped out

Of the numerous burrows

Scurrying all over.

Fledgling saplings

Raised their heads

Breaking loose

From out of the earth

Growing in abundance

A burst of delicate

Green leaves sprouting

On tender stems

In response to the wave

Of the magic wand

Of the gardener!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Marcel Proust
French, Author Quotes

A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.
Jean Cocteau
French, Director Quotes

More grows in the garden than the gardener knows he has sown.
Spanish Proverbs

A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
