Her garden 

a green cathedral 

peopled with strange presences. 

Primeaval stirrings amongst the palm trees,

the cherry blossom seen 

through a bronze eye of mystery,

A great stillness…a great unrest.

in one enigmatic smile. 


Sparrow sounds are not just sparrow sounds 

gulls cries, more than gulls cries, 

the church bell, a bronze gong 

echoed in every corner.
