A Gardening Lifestyle

Photo by Bruce Barone.
I am in God’s Garden.
I am on my knees.
I am weeding. I know
From reading the Bible
Jesus said “By their fruits ye shall know them.”
To do in garden:
Close my eyes and meditate
Practice repetition of the mantra
Focus by slowing down
Photograph and Pray
With one-pointed attention
Cook by training my senses
Always put the welfare of others first
Give thanks for spiritual companionship
Read from the scriptures and mystics
Of all religions
Sit down and read again
Teach self to paint
Put seed out for the birds.
Is it
For anyone
Not to be?
