A Garden Enclosed

I am a garden enclosed,
a locked garden.

Be beautiful, O beautiful flowers,
resplendent colours who smell like angels.

Sprout thick, you vegetables
with meaty nourishment.

Weeds, you may propagate
(but don’t enlarge your borders),
for you teach me humility.

Grow, O tree of life,
root deep into the earth of my soul.

Jesus, you are the gardener,
tend, prune, find pleasure.

Till my soil,
walk gently upon my paths.

(2013)
The first two lines come from the song “Garden” by Misty Edwards
