Mary pulled the leaves aside...and found the lock. She took the key from her pocket- it fit the lock! She turned the key and opened the door ever so slowly.....
She was standing inside the Secret Garden...............


Inside us all there lies a secret garden,,,,a place that we keep things in,,,,a private place,,,an inner space,,, to let anyone inside is to open up the gate,,, to hand over the key,,,still warm from your own palm,,,

Inside this secret space we can put all our treasures,,,thoughts ,,, memories,,emotions,,,,this place can be an Eden,,,,a thing of beauty,,,or not...

The walls of the secret Garden can be high stone walls,, built stone by stone from past experiences,,it can stand as a barrier, hardly allowing the light to come filtering in,,, a fortress if you will.....or their could only be ,, a simple hedge,, of green growing things,, fresh and intertwineing vines ,,,or a bower of wild thorny roses...and thorns can tear an intruders flesh....

If you are allowed into this garden ,, anyones secret garden,,, stay on the pathway,,, touch not or alter what you find,,,let the sun warm your face ,, listen to the birdsong ,, do not pick the flowers,,that you may find,, no matter how beautiful,,,

Be respectful and nurturing of what you find there ,,, in that world,, that private space ,, if treasures you find there,, a bluebirds egg,, a perfect rose,, let it remain,, unless invited to hold...

Everyone has an Eden ,,, inside ,, somewhere,,, that they can escape to and explore,, may yours be filled with sunlight ,,,,and warmth,,,and beauty...

blessings,

Diana
