Garden Of Eden


Such a sacred sanctuary of serendipitous serenity
Nestled, cradled within the bosom of a Divine Oasis...
With a loving hand, Mother Earth has exquisitely unleashed
Her artistic ability through this work of art we refer to as 'Nature'

Leafy shades and textures of green dance to wind gust symphonies
Finely crafted wood compose uniquely seductive beats
This protective pocket provides a secluded Paradise...

So I stand beneath with head thrown back, arms outstretched and inhale
This slice of Heaven…
Above me, brilliant rays of light, paint kisses upon my freckled canvas

The Sun sets in shades of crimson and shall reappear after this night's rest
In its absence, a blanket of dark stretches across the sky; a Heavenly sight
Speckled lights twinkle as a fistful of glitter is Fairy-dusted across the sky

Moon's light...
Stars bright...
Such an impressive sight...

As an invited spectator
I am honoured to bare witness to this breathtaking exhibit
Of nature's beauty

...A beauty only Goddess Mother Earth can create

A beauty...

...This beauty

The beauty of the Garden of Eden

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
