Poetic Thursday: The Weed

Poetic Thursday again with Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats. This was  a fun photo to inspire a poem:

Here’s my poem:

The Weed

Some days I work in the garden for hours,
watering, weeding and tending flowers.

Deer eat the blooms, raccoons dig up plants;
family and friends are tired of my rants.

The critters sometimes feel the need
to eat my plants while ignoring the weeds!

But the work and heartbreak are all worthwhile
when an unexpected bloom brings me a smile.

Just like this little flower so sweet,
finding its way through the hard concrete.

It needs no human help to survive,
but flourishes with what God provides.
