Not Quite from the Garden: Waterfalls From My Vacation
I thought I would share some pictures from my vacation. I was gone 5 days and the garden grew. Time proceeds without us. We are both trivial and significant. The garden is a bit beat up but held up pretty well. A few neighbors watered my container plants and they look healthy. Tomorrow I will groom and tend to the plants.
But first... here are some pictures from a park in New York. Gardens brings a level of tranquility and peace to many people and so does Nature, all in all, when we take the time to embrace it. Waterfalls always seem to be peaceful. I do write poetry. At the end of the pictures is a poem I recently wrote. Inspired by many things and finished off with my walk through this gorge of small waterfalls.
Do not sit in mediocrity.
It is like a clear blue day,
Thick with humidity.
Where the sun shines yellow;
like a second hand street peddler.
