Garden - Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

How hard is it to be
in an olive garlanded grove
hinging with dove cots, cooing
under a sensual night's cover
where all that seemed becomes real
when awaken that is just me
tries in vain to coax back
my thought
driven by its own thirst,
wanders for wonder beyond starry folds
to the thrall
of as if my eyes' first landscape
where I am and to me!

Topic(s) of this poem: life and death

    A truly self searching, introspective piece
    set in metaphorical idiom,
    a true marvel.

    Is there
    another world for my dust of form
    to warm life and be myself again
    when the gardener of dust
    re-uses my frame as a mould
    for the shape of future dust?

    The lines speak about the real gardener who plants and prunes the garden. We are, but dust... May the gardener use us as a mould. The lines are very touching. Thank you for sharing this poem. A blessed day!
