Awaken as I did, to the redolent fragrance and purity of the rose bushes beneath my window. The bewitching aromatic strands of heavenly bliss infuse my senses with the joy of the early morning's gift of renewal.


A slow ecstatic smile forms on my lips, so very happily, in keeping with the momentum of my tranquil, peaceful soul, I slowly, lazily stretch my rested body into the process of full and complete awakening from a well needed and undisturbed slumber.


I open my eyes to the light of the new beginnings of the smiling rays of the sunlight as it dances, peeking through the curtains betwixt the dewdrops and the light, forming myriads of tiny kaleidoscopic prisms. It beckons me towards a forgetting of the past and a rebirth into the future.


The beauty and sereneness of this new blessing of a day which promises newness and a restart of a shattered life, mixes with enchantment and seduction of the floral angel's trumpets, carnations, azaleas, dianthus, lily of the valley and tuberoses, all vying for acceptance amongst the marveled curiosity of the roses.


I arise from my morning's perfumed reverie, calmly moving my feet to the coolness of the floor, and, ah, the heavenly bliss of the wonderous sensation of life's depth of exhilaration and delight which precedes the donning of my slippers and the gliding on joyful air out into the beckoning colorful garden.


I feel as one with creation, one with nature, I am now as close to perfection and heaven as I will ever be. I am calm..........












Forgotten and left in the past are yesterday's pains, sorrows, regrets, rueful mistakes, apologies for being me, when me is all that I ever wanted to be.


I now inhale life as it was meant to be. With no more questions on my mortality or immortality. Let whatever will come unto me, find me in perfect harmony with myself and creation.


Here within the secrets of a garden, I find unplanned joy in the open spaces, outdoors, within the cultivation, display, and enjoyment of plants and all forms of nature. I find and identify with all of earth's wildest creations. The garden incorporates all of me, while healing my soul in complete and total renewal of my life.


Follow the steps while feeling in perfect harmony with your own psyche and allowing your you to say:

I am finally ready life.

I am finally free!!!!!!!

  • Lingering in the garden, simply allowing yourself & all things to be..., ...I've never been too good at that, lol. There has to be a weed somewhere that needs to be pulled or plant that needs watering/pruning/training up a trellis.
