A garden's statue


A garden's statue


In the garden I sit,
on a bench close
to a statue
of a monk holding
a dove in his arms.
So peaceful he seems.

The sculptor captured
the essence of St. Francis
so well,
so kind,
so loving,
he was.
the statue-
so life- like.

I talk to him of my troubles,
talk to him of my dreams,
talk to him of my day's activities.

A gentle wind hugs me,
and my spirit is uplifted.
"Thank you", I say.
"until tomorrow."
