Empty Garden

Updated on April 7, 2010

My Empty Garden


Orchards are growing

flowers in bloom

manufactured lawns

gardens with wishing wells

paths of roses

they have no home

illusions of

centered perfect

leading back

producing beauty

at mans will

having no say

vines can't grow

too much room

they might take

reaching for the sun

growing steady

just until

empty garden stands here

no fruits will ever bear
