Home > Touch the Earth > AUTUMN IN THE GARDEN


19 Dec 2015   SHNTI GOWANS
A storm has risen,
blowing hot air,
making Jasmin's mind go
towards distant space.
Is the veil getting blown away?
On a hot day in summer,
without any rain,
the heat burns and parches life. 
The flowers which lighted up the garden,
have become withered and brown.
Who has obstructed the waterfall,
tying it mercilessly on the rocks
over the crest of sorrow miles away?
Thirst fills her eyes,
and thirst has also engulfed her heart.
The creeper of life bows down to your feet.
Death's beauty and promise of eternal life
inspires Nature and her life forms
with the advent of autumn.
Everything surrrenders, lets go.
Love has filled Jasmine's eyes,
and love has engulfed her heart. 
Within the joyous gardens
of nature's soul,
overflowing the earth and sky,
linked with sun rays, 
Love for all has blossomed
and triumphed.
Preserve nature,
And nature will preserve us,
Simplify life,
And make nature thrive,
Plant trees,
And make our planet green.
O, such beauty has filled
me with nature
and you.
