Within the heart of the city there’s a garden full of life
Hidden away but yet in plain sight
Green foliage covered in flowers: pink, white and blue
Camellias and Statice in full bloom.
The people laugh and the birds sing, like an eternal spring
Small green ferns cover the ground
Red Cordyline break through the green karkalla
A sanctuary busting with flora
Purple irises and yellow daffodils cover the endless landscape.
An escape from reality and an escape from life.
