Treasure Island

Anita Atina

The garden of five senses

The garden of five senses

Welcomes with flowers, of all hues

An island of green amidst historic ruins

That pushes the urban sprawl away

And lends unhurried space

Wind chimes sway in the breeze

With fragrant plants and flowering trees

Terracotta elephants keep company

To shimmering fountains

And royal courts of rare plants

Amidst this garden stands the

The tree of life

In quiet glory

At home with the garden

Yet apart, reaching out to the sun

Fluid waterways hold shy lilies

And a green grass skirt hides the moist earth well

Birds, butterflies and bees

Fly back, to waiting trees, at sunset

As nature keeps quiet harmony

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
