The Gardener

​The flowers stylishly laid on it’s bed in patterns of colours, in their different shades which makes you feel that you are actually in the paradise called Eden, was one of the things that made him to take gardening as his new found love. He would be content to water those flowers every blessed morning he wakes up and prune them to maintain this picturesque view, and should weed try to compete for the manure he would religiously feed the flowers with, he would make sure that they don’t live to share their experience with any other. He promised himself not to live and see any of the flowers wither and even when he would get choked up with activities to the extent that he would not have time enough to pray for himself, he would still pray that this article that has so much enchanted him would remain the food for the eyes of all that would one day come across this great work spot of his. He never saw the drudgery of routine associated with such work as

a threat to the hope he had built, he didn’t even think of drought season as a challenge and a fight he would still fight to keep his cherished plants alive. In his schedule was no time for feeding and rest, he never envisaged health challenges as one of the things that would stand  between him and his flowers and of course, people’s opinion of him would be the least in the ladder of things that would dissuade him from being a humble flower lover or gardener in a more common parlance but that was all an assumption that failed to stand the test of time. He was found sinking, distracted, angered even by the unresponsiveness of some species of flowers that had overgrown their lifespan and withered even though he did all he could to keep them in his garden for just a little longer. He could still remember how he killed some of his flowers in the bid to help them reach greater level of growth through wrong method of fertilizer application and it got him miles away from the hope he once  rode on. He saw all these metamorphosis take place and that’s what actually turned him to this great gardener he now is
