A Little Bit


It takes a bit of sunshine

and a little bit of rain

It takes a bit of joy

and a little bit of pain

It takes a bit of rest

and a little bit of strain

For the garden of the heart to grow


© Julie Rehnelt 2015



I really don’t enjoy the rain, pain, and strain parts, but they truly are a necessary part of any garden’s good growth.

I hope the garden of your heart is growing in good health today, and is filled with…

  8. I’m such a huge fan of your work. Poetry and photography book by you would be a dream come true. 🙂 A girl can dream, right!? Love and inspiration. Always.


    • I’m a huge fan of yours Noora. Truly, your words are always so exquisite and beautifully expressed. Putting out a book would be a dream for me too! A friend of mine keeps telling me that I should do that, but I don’t feel confident that my stuff is good enough – I’m just an amateur photographer with a simple point and shoot camera, and I’m pretty sure my poetry doesn’t follow any ‘rules’ of what actual poetry is supposed to be, but maybe I should look into it and see, because it really would be amazing! Thank you for your encouragement Noora, you’re the best! ❤

      • Julie, I really think you should make your dream your goal! Your art is fantastic, and free verse poetry doesn’t have to follow any rules 🙂 I’ve been SO busy lately, but will be back to post and comment soon. Much love to you my beautiful friend! ❤
