Was it illusion,was it a dream?
That Garden in moonlight , ink
Dark sky. A single cloud like a
Razor passing. Black tree stretched 
High and it’s claws scratched the
The milky way.Rectangular pond
Black as crude oil deadly still, I
Kneel and gaze deep within; like
Narcissus  enamoured and
Transformed. A door into
Summer opens, blinding light
And in one stroke, my Garden
Is no more.

Rich imagery, David, much to ponder here. Is it the Garden that is the dream? or the blinding light of Summer? Either way, it's a wonderful write. Thanks for your comment on mine.

Awesome description of the transformation of the seasons, David. It almost seemed like the sueden onset of summer took away a welcome, somber mood. If this is for the contest, I think you'll very well with this incredible piece! Love, Carolyn
