Poem:Picture of the Garden

There is a picture of The Garden
as a garden within a garden
(by which I mean Paradise),

one state enclosed by another state,
one embrace folded in the
loving arms of another, greater,
deeper, greener,

more far-reaching, with
heavenly valleys, gorges, golden
sunlight everywhere,

laughing children, rare

flowers.

  1. Thank you, bloggers… I hope you might voyage around the site and see the other islands of poetry, their clouds of light, their conflagrations… a few notes of outlandish music…
