Her heart like a barren land where everything planted soon withered without care, she stopped waiting for wildflowers to bloom in between wishes thrown away to the winds.
A patient gardener, he tilled the soil in his garden of waiting, planting seeds of tender green shoots straining to reach the sun. Every day he tended to his field of life in stop motion, seeking beauty in nature’s own time, never hurried.
He sowed seeds of happiness and peace in between her wild rose memories gently weeding out her urge to run riot up the garden trellis at the first sign of actual love’s cultivation.
She was unkempt, lost so long in being unseen; rows of perfect blossoms imperfectly lay in ruin upon her barren soil.
Until a patient gardener’s hands held her firmly and saw the beauty through the ruin, gently pruning away the debris of life under stormy skies for so long.
In sunlit garden on rocky shore she now blooms once more, barren earth made fertile under tender touch of her patient gardener.
Her perfectly imperfect blossoms blooming, once again reaching for the light.
