Beautiful! I'm sort of a gardener wanna-be and I love the imagery and the struggle that you've laid out here. Wonderful writing.

You made me smile and reminded me why a gardener I am not:) Nice job! Very creative.

I've taken up gardening recently so I really enjoyed this piece - especially the line about "weapons of mass exhaustion". So true. Great writing.

Very creative take on War and Peace. There is definitely an aspect of War in gardening, but, what peace to sit back and enjoy the fruits.

Very enjoyable peace of work. In keeping with the war theme, you might have called it "Guarden Worrier(?)" But good work anyway.

I enjoyed this very creative poem. What a wonderful metaphor: manicured soldiers!

From the title, I expected it to be about Jesus praying in the garden. I was pleasantly surprised to read a beautiful verse about a war I've fought with joy and the peace that follows. Loved it!
