Beautiful sea of blue, blue sky;
Not a cloud in sight.
Legion of aging trees standing by.
Crisscross pattern of leafy shadows fight.
My toes are warmed by the golden sun
While I lazily rest in the shade.
Noisy birds on the run.
Swarm of tiny flies invade.
Wave of my hand sends the flies away.
Peace returns to my shade.
Dry leaves dance in crazy disarray
Under a bush of dark green and jade.
Lavender buds bouncing; a butterfly delight.
Pool water sparkling reflecting the sun.
Dragon fly soars to dizzying height-
Two more join in zig zagging fun.
Never a boring moment on my Garden Watch.
Each day I’m thoroughly entertained.
From my heart springs up “How great thou art!”
My joy in God’s creation can’t be contained!
