My Secret Garden


If you wear headphones it's almost quiet.

In the middle there's a fountain and potted plants ring it so you almost think you're by a stream in a forest of palms and philodendron.

There are only a couple of benches.

Sometimes people pray in front of the statue of the Virgin Mother.

If you look up you can see the windows to the kitchen and the Church workers washing their dishes.

But if you keep looking up all worries, disappointments and unanswered prayers fall by the wayside and your heart just can't help but open wide like the sky.
