The Corner of my Garden

In the corner of my garden
There is a patch of untouched nature
No trimmed edges or neat hedges
Here beauty is free to roam
Tiny marigold pops gingerly around
The solitary angelic daisy
Hibiscus droops from the nearby bush
A shade for me to rest
And here as I lie on the lacy grass
And see the rays filtering down
I see the doves mating dance
On the branches of the Gulmohar
I close my eyes in contentment
As a two-winged visitor
Brings a little bit of perfume
From the roses in the garden next door

*Gulmohar- a flowering tree native to India.

    What a spectacular poetic view of your garden...marigolds and daisies, oh and hibiscus...what a relaxing and fragrant place to sit and read! We could sit down together and write in the shade! :)
