A Poem: THE BACKYARD SANCTUARY

The Buddha Frog in Our Backyard Sanctuary.
THE BACKYARD SANCTUARY

No god is needed; My wife and I will do.
We split and weed, and plant seed.
We trim and choose, and rule our tiny spot,
but not --- like one such other.  
Mother Nature framed this scene,
and with her choices will be Queen.
But at least, I see my debt
and live to fill her coffers.

It is a special place, our world;
The world of life and persons.
It is our Response and Ability,
to keep it such and More.
And pass it to our future kind, 
for ashes soon we be.
For after all, we are a 'food'
in this Great Chain of Being.
Of what shall come hereafter,
we made our contribution, 
too.

  1. All good things come of effort and
    love. You have shown us through writing and pictures. I will send you my picture of our “ frog of leisure and comfort “.
