quadrille garden

Gnomes, fairy-folk and hobgoblins,

All welcome to come and enjoy

The flowers, fruit galore

Please take care of my garden

Trolls, pixies and pond nymphs

All welcome to come and enjoy

To look after my souls spirit space

From humanities consumption

Of earths resources.

  1. So whimsical like a little garden party happening here and yet, the message is clear. Some of these “spirit spaces” are getting harder to come by. Thanks for sharing yours.

  2. Oh yes…..a garden can be a soul’s spirit place. Living in a high rise in the middle of Boston, we have a small deck and I revel in my three potted geraniums and make me cheerful each morning as I sit out there and have my morning coffee and breakfast! No room for gnomes or hobgoblins….but I do have a very heavy metal turtle on the ledge 🙂

  3. Oh, I love this. This has amazing themes with fantasy and mythology. Such an original and innovative piece here, with these evocations of a soul being left behind from their place. It seems evinced that way in these few lines:

    “All welcome to come and enjoy
    To look after my souls spirit space
    From humanities consumption
    Of earths resources.”

    I love this poem from start to finish. Excellent take on the prompt. Well done.

  4. I am minded of Led Zeppelin’s -Stairway to Heaven- “There’s a feeling I get / When I look to the west / And my spirit is crying for leaving.” We turn away from our spirits leaving nothing for our souls at our own peril.

  5. We named it Meatball…after the turtle about his size my son had in his childhood. At our vet’s instructions, we put him in the vegetable drawer of our fridge (sans vegetables) to hibernate part of each year. Many a guest screamed when opening that refrigerator drawer by mistake!
