Overgrown Haiku

Overgrown garden
Leaves and vines entwined in bliss
My disheveled grace

We had friends over last Sunday for a music gathering, and when I showed some of them around the yard, at first I was feeling a little embarrassed about the state of my garden…until I realized that I love it just the way it is…and I embraced the messiness.

 I do believe I’ve found myself a new creed!
