The Well in the Garden


The Well in the Garden on Facebook

A well is a source you can draw from, it can quench a thirst but can also be a place to rest awhile. A place to gather your thoughts and rejuvenate. Perhaps you will meet another who comes to draw from the well, or perhaps you wish to throw something in, a prayer maybe, traditionally it is a wish…but maybe your own words of wisdom that will echo back at another who looks into its depths.

The Well in the Garden started as a writing group called “The Well in the Garden” on a social media platform called – I don’t use it any more so I’m not sure if it is even still running but it was a really fun place to go for a while to meet with lots of other writers, some of whom I am still friends with on Facebook and such. This is the link if it’s still there –

As part of that endeavour I did start a blog to share with those writers on Marsocial and there is still some good work posted on there, so please feel free to check it out – The Well’s  NEWSLETTER BLOG –

You can now visit my new look Well in the Garden on Facebook…

So please drink freely from the well – throw in a prayer or make a wish, contribute a poem or piece of prose, art or some spiritual inspiration… whatever is your thing. I just hope you will add your own wisdom that others can draw from.

…stop by for a visit sometime, I would love to meet you. We are a friendly group so don’t be shy – come and say hi! 🙂

A poem of mine inspired by the theme of the well…

The Well of Wisdom willingly waits
for the chance to catch a lonely soul
who throws a coin to pay the fates
to help them with their chosen goal
so many come and make their wish
and hope that wisdom finds them
they learn that fate serves a rather cold dish
to those without true freedom
So do not look to wishing wells
to give your heart’s desire
no outside force or simple spells
will ever quench the fire
because that thirst for vision
can only be found in you
the power is in your own decision
to your own heart you must be true
But then there is another magic
to be found inside the well
the gods can be so cryptic
in the advice they choose to sell
for if you look into its depths
the well will show quite clear
a reflection of your hidden strengths
beneath your own veneer
