In an Italian Renaissance garden
I marvel at water features, trimmed boxwood and yew,
regal marble statues.
I wander Monet’s garden
a living Impressionist painting
Pastel water lilies float in Olympic pool ponds,
tourists jostle for space
wisteria scales his Japanese Bridge.
In an English landscape garden
I walk among flowing paths and tall trees
Perennial beds burst into bloom.
Snowy clematis creeps across my arbour
roses blush pink, delphiniums stand straight
Beauty and peace
in my garden
