In Every Garden

Suzette Prime/Free Verse undulating yowls both sides of my hemispheres reverberates through the ears sadness rejection continuously play the mind longs for its most melodious display nature sings in sweet harmony with every raindrop amidst the howl of the gale whimpering of leaves drives all the cicadas into their unpleasant sleep sweetest warbles of the wrens coos of other birds flapping wings of butterflies the enticing smiles of every colorful flower I can’t hear sounds trampled by the laughter of the rolling thunder through monstrous work load wreathed my freedom and hope yet, I snuggle in the silence of my heart listening winnowing the throbs clearing head to dross swotting disregard the trifling thud with the viewing of sunrise reaching out the synchronizer of nature it’s a comforting feeling trickling and flowing like dew from tributary down to the threshold of sweetest mellowed treble tasting the most scrumptious spiritual beauty just within in every garden always there is a beautiful music to be heard but the heart has to be kept deep in silence enough to hear it and find joy in life in this world. April 12,2014 2.20pm -sharing an old poem. this poem didn't earn any dollars or cents :))) It was just asked by one of our dear great poets and authors to publish it and it was also an honor for me. Second Place Contest: A Million Dollar Poem Contest #1 Judged: 6/12/2015 Sponsors: My dearest fave poet sisters PD and Skat
