Garden of meaning for psychiatrists

Life and passion

Unite for the steady

Hand that holds

Silver-linings for

A new season

Renewed spirit

Gazes among the

Colorful display

That welcomes

Ingestion of

Spiritual growth

Fig and tomato

Harmony and enlightenment

In a bowl of

Prosperity shining

Amongst the green


Plentiful diverse

Harvest ripe

With seeds

Of humanity


Sweet autumn auguries

Amass in the garden

Of meaning.
