Nostalgia Shunga: The Flower's Sweet Perfume

 

...what if you close your eyes

what if you close your eyes and fall asleep

what if you fall asleep and

dream a dream

a dream that you unlocked the gate and

walked into the Garden

 

you walked into the Garden and

saw a flower

you saw the flower and

took her in your trembling hands

you slowly unfold her fragile petals revealing soft and hidden beauty 

 

what if you close your eyes

what if you close your eyes and

breathe in her sweet perfume

what if you breathe in her sweet perfume and

drift away

 

what if you drift away and

when you are awake you see that she is gone

you see the empty Garden with no flutter of her laughter

with no river of her flowing hair

just silence

what then?..

Close your eyes to this
or break your hermitage.
Dream a little dream
and be warned oh man, awake
you will with solution on hand.

Approach the portals of peril
when awake and no flower
you will see.
Strong rooted you will stand,
not drifting away.
vz-nostalgia: At least, there was no rain or Coltrane involved this time, Louis. smile

....

then, in that silence
you open your eyes
and with eyes wide open, you live that dream
that dream where that garden gate
awaits opening
to lead you into the garden
the garden where the flower lies
where you unfold her soft petals
breathe in her sweet perfume
and become
the dream
the flower dreams
in the Garden of Life.
vz-nostalgia: I knew this post would resonate with you, Terry. It's not easy to be a good Gardener of the Garden of Life, Love and Light. One mistake, one misstep and the flower is gone.
Silent gardens
are
better than
none

Silent gardens
are
better than none
'cause they bear deep inside
a seedling of hope

Zebra crossing
Haven or trap
vz-nostalgia: :
heaven or trap...
all depends on
who's crossing
What then? The memory but a memory worth having.

She seems awkward; a forced position. To achieve the shadow pattern perhaps but it causes discordance with that suggested.
vz-nostalgia: I see absolutely nothing awkward in her position, Ms. Pixie, less "forced". The perspective is unusual, yes, but you don't come to Nostalgia to see the usual, do you? smile
