“Foliage in the Garden I”

Foliage in the Garden I

Size: 4 x 4
Mixed media on canvas

“Who Will You Send?”

“Who will you send to help me tend
The beautiful Sunflower garden again?”
My simple request to the Lord I made
As I watched the summer fade.

“For you I will search and find someone rare
Whom you can entrust with the Sunflowers’ care.
A person, like you, who’ll see in each flower
The beauty and grace, the potential and power.

And as you’re working side by side,
Remember in each other to always confide
Your hopes, your dreams, your tears and fears
Concerning each flower in your garden here.

For your goals and my goals are both the same:
To tend to their needs without fanfare or fame.
Training and guiding and providing the light
For each special flower to bloom full and bright.”

So to each dear assistant I now say, “Thank you!
I’m so glad that you were sent especially my way.
For much like the Sunflowers who in my garden grow,
So much of our success to you we both owe!”

“Allegorical Journey”
by Kathryn Henneman

“Common Bond”

The shadowed streaks of twilight slip silently away
And tuck behind the mountains to mark another day.
Now leaving just the night sounds to whisper and remind
Of magical trips and trusted friends, lost and left behind.

To a time when only dreams had the power to transcend
And bring us together, beyond the unrest, one by one as friends.
Kindred souls, sharing a moment, bound by love and freedom.
Moved by the words and music…we danced to a different drum.

Those days and nights are forever etched deep within my heart.
I see their faces, hear their voices, though so many years apart.
Their love and friendship, counsel and humor, are a part of what I say.
And nudge me now so gently with thoughts I write each day.

I wish I would have realized those many years ago
Our moment was just an instant in the lives we were to know.
I could have brushed a farewell kiss as I gazed into each face.
But one by one, we left not knowing we had shared our last embrace.

“Third Generation”
by Kathryn Henneman

“Remembrance”
by C.L. Gillmore 

Alone.
I wait for them
Beginning in quiet,
Drifting along, silent
Through dappled streams of sunlight
Hovering along the surface of remembrance
Translucent visions from the past
Linking across, still
Ending in whispers,
They wait for me
Alone.
