The Garden

Rating: 4.7
It shines in the garden,
in the white foliage of the chestnut tree,
in the brim of my father's hat
as he walks on the gravel.

In the garden suspended in time
my mother sits in a redwood chair:
light fills the sky,
the folds of her dress,
the roses tangled beside her.

This beautiful poem describes the philosophical garden through a cosmic, an interior, and a spiritual angle of view. Readers are endowed to see this garden with their eyes of thought. This glow is described as equally material and spiritual. Moreover, it can penetrate both space and time. This glow is strong because it contains holiness. I loved reading this poem.
