I shall enter the garden through the heavy gates.
Pushing the gate ajar, it resists and creaks with the effort.
It is a different world inside the garden.
An Eden, an oasis.
A place where the spirit is lifted from the heavy burden.
The lilies shine light and glimmer in the sun.
Tadpoles swimming below. Soon to be frogs floating above.
I swoon in delight of the sight of such serenity.
