Garden long poem

Photo by hlkljgk

Sometimes we hide
If you ask us where We go
It is likely we will tell you

In the summer it is a garden of hope
It is a garden of blossoms
It is a garden of light
It is a garden of colors
Too many to see

It is a garden of mulberries
It is a garden of bare feet
It is a garden of opening
It is a garden of sunlight
It is a garden of concealing
It is a garden
There is no better word for it

This garden runs through the alleyways
It scatters the meadows
It grows in the gravel
And perfumes the air that we breathe

In the winter it is a garden of frozen leaves
It is a garden of icy steps
It is a garden of slumber
It is a garden of snowfall
Too soft to believe

It is a garden of vines
It is a garden of leather shoes
It is a garden of increase
It is a garden of cold wind
It is a garden of decrease
It is a garden
There is no better word for it

I have fashioned a ball out of
And hung it from a trestle bridge
Over a valley.

It is true we are hungry,
It is true we are waiting,
Three stones wrapped in cotton.
Three seeds wrapped in burlap.

Flow Poetry ~Paving the way for a new approach to spoken word jam, Flowpoetry transcends musical boundaries and interlaces shared storytelling and poetic vibration into a communal and collective consciousness that unifies the ancient and future as one."Flowpoetry's verses find the right rhythm and pitch for every approach (and) he reads them with an ease that lets the music sing. … makes the relationship between words and music feel new again. Carves out a tribal, ambient, dreamy vibe.... " The Isthmus (Madison, WI)"Courageous and organically fused…similar to that of Rage Against The Machine at times, honest and holds the mood of a Shaman performing cleansing rituals." Local Playlist (Milwaukee, WI)"Flowpoetry is one of the most unique and riveting performers on the Midwestern musical and artistic landscape. The group is on the cutting edge of the nationwide expansion of new forms of spoken word.... unique, theatrical and musical." DeKalb Chronicle (DeKalb, IL)"...very chill yet gripping. On a mission to bridge the gap between poetry and music and does so.... ...some hip jive, Cat Daddy." Gapers Block Presents: Transmission (Chicago, IL)"Leaving space for stories to unwind, but without forgetting the primal urge to move feet." - Leicester Bangs (United Kingdom)

The Garden ode

I went to see my dad today, across his green garden strolled, Stone monuments graced my way, standing tall and covered in mould, Flowers in their vases began to sway, bare trees behind were shaking, I swallowed back the tears
