a disappointing harvest
so you fancied yourself a gardener
when the wind blew the seeds your way
tilling the soil
clearing the weeds
watering, when the rains refused to fall
and you dreamt you’d harvest blossoms
in the colours of God
wonders to behold
the crowning glory of your toil
why did you frown
at your harvest of straw?
can bricks be made from blossoms?
can the weary rest
on a bed of fading roses?
