Every weekend I post something different along with original photos. Last Sunday we were at the manager's home of the Karoo Desert National Botanical Garden. I took a photo of their wall art outside their front door. That photo inspired today's post. I've also included another poem of mine below.

Plant Smiles
Grow Laughter
Harvest Love

Give a Smile

Give a smile to those you meet
A friendly look when you greet
It may be just what they need
Planting hope as a seed

It’s the sunlight through the trees
A bit of warmth on a cool breeze
Open your heart just a little
Then it won’t become brittle

Why not give it a try?
There’s no need to be shy
Find a twinkle in your eye
Be the sparkle in the night sky
It will come back to you by and by

The photo above is of their entrance hall taken a previous year. I liked the balance of everything. They have a different painting hanging there now.
