A kind of hush

A grim garden growing,
no afterglow.
Tasmanian devil clouds…
watching the silver moon sail.
A graveyard of life,
fires and dead ashes.
Beyond the dark trees,
a single flower
blooms in winters grip.
It’s root and fruit joyful of living,  
a fragrance of new hope.
And peace in the shadows.
