Poem: "The Heart's Garden"

This poem came out of the March 20, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from E. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles and E.  This poem belongs to the Yellow Unicorns series.

"The Heart's Garden"

The healing temple has
a broad green all around it.

There is the meadow
grazed short by unicorns
and the beds of colorful flowers,
bushes sculpted into soft shapes
and tall shade trees overhead.

There are statues of saints
and other spiritual figures.

Paths wind through the greenery
and wrap around mirrored pools,
inviting people to stroll through.

They call it the Heart's Garden,
where hope and healing may be found.
