Sleeping With the Garden God

Into tendril I eclipse and more
And lit to fond with color blue adorn
The sky a dye of time and also magic
Beaming with bees I lay down with romantic

Close my eyes now into slivered moon
I’ll untie each celestial ribbon soon
While night and shadows hold me in my sleep
Knowing we are only in a prison when we keep
Our feet from feeling earth as opening gate
Into the pulse of mighty music’s till
A song from bless of meadow’s lift and still

The stroke of air is changed within this place
And breathing is the beat within the sound
Where peace distributes moisture to the glade
And I pressed to the garden god am made

With the love made sweet in time ecstatic
I'll cover each bulb to cool in time elastic
They'll open green and graceful
Colors blooming from the dirt
The wonder of this pleasure is
This birthing does not hurt

How beautiful your garden grows...
just as lovely as the one who left behind
these seeds of thought.

"After coupling with my midnight garden god
Each bulb is covered cool in softened sod
To open green and graceful
Colors blooming from the dirt
The wonder of this pleasure is
This birthing does not hurt"

How beautiful, how soft and tender you pen your words.
Very very much enjoyed the read Martie.
There is magic in your pen.
~Smiles & Hugs, Nancy~

~The breeze that kissed you on the face,
   Has held me in the same embrace ~

Are you saying I can "sleep" my way to a better garden Martie??  Geez...all this time I've been using Miracle-Gro.

This is softly reminiscent of spring coming. Lovely work.

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

A wonderful piece.

If only our center were as well rooted in the fertile loam. It was good for me.

Hi Martie. Love this. You amaze me friend. The way you write...dang...if only I was half that good.

Remember, if you're not part of the future, you're history!

Your phrasing of thought and image is just amazing.  Love this one.  Hugs Ken

The yawn of a dawn will hasten the light
