My Garden

My Garden

A Poem by Maan

I tried to hide myself from them but they are all I have now.


After many torturous days,

time is here to be with me,

with my friends,

with my lovers,

In my garden,

After nourishing them

I sat down on velvety grass,

starting again from where we left

sharing what is lost,

telling what is being found,

My friend Rose,

seems worried

looking and listening to me restless,

My love tulips

are humming

trying to distract me,

The humble jasmines

seem placid

leaning focused,

The naughty daisies

are tamed

hugging each other,

The sweet daffodils

are hiding tears

Ignoring respiration,

And I continued,

each flower,

each leaf of each tree,

coming closer,

to hold me, 

I stared and stared at the grass

from morning till sunset,

inhaling my friends essence,

feeling them,

telling them,


I lay down quiet

near garden’s fountain

when I got tired of crying

I lay down in silence,

listening to the lullaby of breeze

and fountain, 

felt peace

as someone wants to take me

to somewhere lull

I lay down and I slept

unaware of myself, in truce

In my garden

Very soothing. I have a great love of flowers. Each does seem to have its own personality as in this piece. I enjoyed your poem.

This is great! You have nothing to say, well I do! I really liked this, though at some places the rhythm seemed a little skewed. Overall, great job :)

In truce, love to give myself a little Truce from me, Shouldn't be such a self critic but what else can keep me from growing into a sloth.?

I loved the way the subject becomes one with the most beautiful prizes of nature, the flowers! A very close to earth poem. I loved it.

Not really much to say about what I am or anything about me. Its like I've never find myself in the spheres of something and something not, I always wander somewhere in between them, all I get is the .. more..
