Santita

Garden

Crisp, twinkling light breaks through willow trees

As green blades of grass gently flow in the breeze

Celestial jasmine flowers softly glow in the light

In this majestic garden my heart has taken flight

Through the fragrant valley of sentiment I roam

Submerged in the raw, moving emotions of his home

Rolling hills of artistic flair protect this sacred ground

Where lavish colors of breathtaking passion are found

Harp strings of wind gently blow golden leaves

Singing a soothing song to put the mind at ease

The scent of hope enriches the enchanting land

As my spirit wanders barefooted in the sand

Storms of desolation have rained here before

Pillars of strength sent them flying far off shore

Now the turquoise ocean happily glimmers in bliss

& I am immersed in the poetic words of his kiss

 

This land of magic & reality
Is the garden of his poetry

    I admire the sense of comfortability in this. "Harp strings of wind gently blow golden leaves" is a really pleasant line, too.

        A lovely write KP. but not lovely for me, as KP turned up in the garden, and ruined it all! lol.

        • Santita

          You must be delirious! You just called me KP!!!

          • orchidee

            Doh! it's all too much. Yep, delirious. KP on the brain. lol.

            Santi, your description of the 'garden of poetry' truly is magic! Every line is beautifully crafted, too many to mention here, except for 'As my spirit wanders barefooted in the sand'. That one, for me, is the most beautiful of them all. Your poem is timeless. A favorite for sure!

                Santita, every line tickles the senses! I love when you say "I am immersed in the poetic words of his kiss" because, like a picture, a passionate kiss, I think, speaks a thousand words! Thanks for a delightful walk through the poetic journey through his garden! You are a top notch poet!!
