The art and delight of shade
expressions of gold buds bursting green 
untrimmed garden’s lush complexion 
describe this eternal lease on passion 
Nothing is temperate about soul’s possession 
Mother said, “ Heaven is a Garden of flowers,
where we’ll always be beautiful.

Hi Suzanne, this is such a wonderful write. Heaven is something different for so many of us. I enjoyed the vision of your Heaven. Heven lies in what the eyes see and the soul translates. I love the content of this write, it brings me peace. A fave. Have a wonderful Monday. Hugs....Mike. XX

This so lovely SuZ. Sorry you didn't have enough lines to have a higher placement. I have mis-read the contest instructions so many times, but then it is too late to change my words after the contest is judged. Congratulations my friend! : ) xxoo

This is like a garden of flowers, Suzanne, I would have placed it higher, but since it has only 7 lines instead of the minimum of 8, I had to place it lower, but really enjoyed it!

Hi Swetha: Thanks for reading and commenting. Really appreciated. SuZ

Nice, very nice. Maybe heaven can be a small part of a garden or small part of God we see in a small part of ordinary life? Well crafted poem SuZ.

Pretty poem. Can we even imagine what Eden must have looked like, a garden planted by God himself? Whoa.
