Happy Anniversary (remnant reminder)

To wake from night mare
Find that it is just a dream
This is a true gift

Remembered horrors
Flit away like leaves on breeze
Gone, gone, gone beyond

Once more, sweet meadow,
Free of that acidic bog
Well rid of ill heath

No more eager weed
creeping, spreading such poison
the preferred past time

Choice to close the door
On “what may be” with a smile
There are no regrets

Repaired the garden
Culled and crushed the sick seedlings
no longer welcome
