The Master Gardener

Like shimmering heat
in sunshine’s streams,
like a cloud of dew
in harvest’s heat;

From His dwelling place,
the Lord observes;
Quietly resting,,
His eyes see all.

Then, before harvest,
as blossoms fall:
Flowers slow turn to
ripening grapes –

The Master Gard’ner
prunes ev’ry vine:
Training their branches
to bear good fruit.

written in response to today’s prompt at The Daily Post, and inspired by the words (although not the original message) of the bible’s book of Isaiah, Chapter 18, verses 4-5

Time for this unplanned Interlude to conclude

It’s been a while since the last post on this blog – a gap originally forced by a bout of tendonitis which made writing/typing very painful, and then prolonged by a bout of lethargy.

Posts will now resume, albeit not necessarily with the same frequency or regularity as previously for a time. I’m considering some tweaks I may make to the appearance and content of the blog for its next season, and will also try to spend some time populating a back catalogue of content, particularly in respect of some of the regular prompts provided by other sites over the past few months.

“A waiting person is a patient person. The word patience means the willingness to stay where we are and live the situation out to the full in the belief that something hidden there will manifest itself to us.”
