April 1 2014 garden 051

Afternoon sun

Slowly sliding down the trunks

Of distant trees,

Minutes measured by branches.

April 1 2014 garden 046

Golden rays illuminating

Each fragile petal like Templar Glass.

Golden light,

Illuminating golden petals;

Gilding each leaf and branch

For a moment only,

Before greeting the horizon

Like a dearly loved friend.

April 1 2014 garden 060

Retiring  so slowly, so silently;

Yet allowing twilight

To linger in the garden,

For a while longer,

With me.

    Woodland Gnome ~~I love your poetry, your pictures, your garden and your blog! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you so much, Gwen. Thank you for visiting Forest Garden 😉 The garden is the most wonderful place right now as plants begin to wake up from this long harsh winter. It is a joy to see what has survived and is starting to grow again. Best wishes, WG

  2. I missed most of our sunset tonight so I’m so grateful I could bathe in that golden light here, through your garden images and words. Beautiful, WG. Thank you. 🙂
