Flowers in a garden

     Watching the blue, yellow and green flowers in a garden 
One can surmise there is a force behind them
The incerdible diversity of life 
is a cause for hope 
As clouds pass overhead
we are at peace due to a sheltering sky 
The delightful odor of jasmine fills the air
A marvelous day is before us
Is there a point to it all?  
Perhaps such natural beauty reflects 
Somthing beyond mortal understanding

    A marvelous poem, Matthew! You are right... there is much that is beyond human understanding. We all should be thankful. Best wishes, Keith

    Last line says it all Matthew,have you ever looked at the delicate beauty of an orchid and wondered how it could be so beautiful. Great poem. Anne

    Hello, Matthew, how are you? I will think about that writing.. about your poem.. I've seen much evidence behind all the flowers in my garden.. I don't think we will ever truly understand them or the real force behind the beauty they hold for such a little time.. like to think of it as a hint of life.. of nothing good ever latest... look at Adam & Eve.. that beauty ended faster than winter ruining all the beauty in my garden... enjoyed your poem..... excellent poem, thank you and have yourself a good night~PD

    I like the description - it paints a pretty picture of a summer garden. But your question takes us outside the garden to the metaphysical world. Thanks for reading my poems.

    Matt, I like how you called this a pastoral form because it gets that feeling across. lovely and reflective!
