Pondering In The Garden

Pondering In The Garden

This garden leaves me pondering
On the foolishness of man
His heart brim filled with greed and lust
Relax he never can
His thoughts are here, and there, and here
They whir on like a motor
He seems to have no inclination
That he could have much more

These things might give him happiness
But not for very long
Cause soon a guy gets used to them
Then sings another song
The greed and lust go round and round
Yet never bring real joy
Though joy it has much power
And naught could it destroy

So first to find the silence
Is, a necessary thing
One must learn to be alone
For solitude does bring
The breath of life into each day
And makes of you a king
Oh, when this joy does enter you
You will have everything

    To be alone where thoughts can come as they will, to feel the presence of nature and heart your heartbeat for a space, it is there you meet yourself without blind eyes..

    Like you Peter, I do find the garden environment a place of solitude with the actors doing what nature intended amongst the colour and diversity that attracts - Lindsay
