You've written a lovely poem here jose. The sentiments are heartfelt and beautifully expressed in that difficult bridge form. It shows your personal journey well while also being a universal comment on the power of God to transform lives. The metaphor of gardening, seeds and flowers works well. We can be two sunflowers smiling at each other.

    Ah, Jenny, :) I'm glad you liked this one. It took me a while to write. First, I wanted to bring out Edger Allen Poe, that didn't work. Then, I saw a pic of Marilyn Monroe, and I was on a roll! But... I changed it all around. :) I'm still going to write about that hot lady!

A very well-written poem that seems to be the Bridges poetry format that I learned from the Potlatch club today which uses the same syllable format and rhyming scheme.

    Thank you, Sandra it is for the Potlatch club, but it didn't show. Hope you liked it. :)

This is extremely good Jose. I really enjoyed the way you crafted the scene with the setting, internal rhymes, and a faith-filled offering to the Lord. So well done!

    Thank you, Melissa. :) This was kind of hard to write. It's a Potlatch club entry. I'm trying to learn. I'm glad you like it and thank you for the stars. :)

I was sure that I read and reviewed this. I probably had it up and had too many windows open. Sorry got distracted.
You did such a beautiful job with conveying the struggles of the spiritual life here. God is the Gardener of all of us and Creation. We, in turn, are called to grow and nurture others to grow in the love we have received. Super job with your Bridges poem!

    Thanks, Helen. :) We need to bring love to as many souls that are suffering, even if we ourselves are in the same boat. I'm glad you liked it.

I loved your style here and the sentiments as you use the garden as a metaphor for growing and nurturing ourselves for a better life. We grow when we have a good outlook on life and stay positive, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

    Thank you, Dolly. :) I'm learning. I thought I knew, but I don't. You are the expert in sonnets. I hope you don't mind me fanning you. :) Sorry, I'm late in answering. I wasn't here nor near a computer.

You have the gift to write wonderful lines, they touched my heart. one of my favorites is 'God made my that way." Now when I look at the blue sky and think of my loved ones residing in there...God made me that way. Even if they are in heaven, I still miss them...

A lovely and reflective poem., searching for and finding the meaning of life, and then fruitfulness in service. A lot of gardening images, with both you and the Lord. Well done.

A gardener is an angel. He takes care the lives of plants. He provides the nutrients that a plant needs. The health and beauty of a plant depends on the loving care of a Gardner. We are our own gardeners. What we turn out to be depends on our care.

Good job.

It's funny to hear people say that God is disappointed with them, when really He poured out all the disappointment He's going to pour out on His own Son, He cannot be disappointed or ambushed, He just knows where you'll be when the trumpet, well done, like you say, He knew where you were heading, well done, great write, blessings Roy

    Thank you, greyson. I'm glad you liked it. I joined in 2017, though they got me in since 2013 for a poem I wrote. I'm still learning. This is from the Potlatch poetry club. Every weak Jan challenges us to write a different style of poetry. :) Sorry, I'm late in answering. I wasn't here nor near a computer.
