“My Secret Garden” (Poetry) Thursday Write Photo Prompt & Word of The Day Challenge – Sanctuary


“My Secret Garden”



When my mind is befuddled and distraught,

I seek refuge beyond the threshold that leads to 

my sanctuary, my secret garden.

The slate mossy pathway lined with lovely blue dawn

of morning glory soothes and relieves the anguish

of my heart that has hardened. 

The fiasco and upheaval of what lies beyond 

the confines of stone walls protect me,

I sit upon my bench, contemplating the iniquity,

of which I cannot pardon.

… I close my eyes, exhale to atrociousness 

the outside world serves, and inhale all that

is virtuous, all that is enclosed within my secret garden.
