Garden of Hope

Photo by Andre Furtado on

The fragrant spring air

Enticed her senses

As she walked through the garden

Her mother had planted

To form inviting paths

Through their large backyard

 She needed this time in nature

To clear her head

She needed this garden

To remind her of her mom

She needed this solitude

To find her inner strength

For today was the beginning

Of respecting herself

And shutting off the lies

Lies he has told her for years

Now she can stand alone

Without any fear

And face the future

With a little hope in her heart

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – fragrant
