Watering the Garden of Dreams

taciturn springs rising from within the quarry of deep earth's wisdom urging lyrical waters to transpose while held like singing seas of living reveries of history and infinity misting to meld with rainfall dreams Falling like ancient messages into the orchard of molecular landscapes drawn to penetrate its legacy embedded in the rockeries and rills blanketing the groves of dirt and ferns teeming in the arcadian oasis feeding feast or famine flourishing the solicitude of springtime in spider spun dreams of longings in ancient oaks merging with the ebb of shedding sycamores in salted seas teeming and exalting the rhetoric of existence in musing opaque vapors mingling into pervasive clouds bleeding life cached in the creche of pastoral beginnings of everlasting eddies watering the garden of dreams April 22, 2020 Rewritten: October 3, 2020 Your Best Free Verse 2020 Sponsored by John Hamilton

Lonna, I pondered this one a long time this morning, reading it several times, just luxuriating in the density of poetic imagery and luscious phrasing. "singing seas of living reveries / of history and infinity" is my favorite among many lovely lines. Going into my faves to return to when my own garden grows dry. Have a beautiful day ~ John

Lonna, each and every poetic line is a brilliant facet of creative imagery, alliteration and captivating phrases like; 'cached in the creche', that sparkle in rich harmony. A shining gem of a poem. I was mesmerized by the depth and finesse of your artistry. A metaphoric beauty and a fav! Best wishes for a win and warmest wishes for you, dear poetess.. ~Susan
