The Divine Gardener
One Sunday in March an hour was lost as the clocks went forward,
Though nothing outward changed, we started British Summer time.
Although still cold what could we do, but positively look onward?
To the bursting, blooming, scents of Summer in our chosen clime.
A house which was made into a home, chosen for a mission
Was surrounded with favourites, bringing all the varied scents
And colours to delight the senses and entice all with permission.
Then of course there are feathered friends who sing their descants.
High boundaries to the Monastery Garden have excluded
The outside world, in quiet contemplation all are secluded.
Apart that is from one red breasted songster who serenades us
Sitting in topmost branches of flowering trees he brings a plus.
He is of course not alone in his pleasant if high flown intrusion
Others are welcome in our own race, as creators in profusion.
The invitation is individual there is no doubt, but only mindful
Following introduction, questioning and answering acceptable.
Unique energies of this special place, kept for mother and child
And all who venture into this sacred space and therefore undefiled.
Care taken to preserve a place to relax, contemplate and meditate.
Meet us in this Secret Garden adding on the energies, to radiate.
Spreading to the world the healing energies of harmony and love,
As in far off places where this community was instigated,
The Monastery Garden is physically preserved and gated,
More importantly connected to other centres by the peace dove.
The dove exists in the meditating mind connecting to all,
All of like minded spirituality and love for all the kingdoms.
Generated over millennia by this beloved planet at random,
Such diversity is truly marvellous if you’re open to hear the call.
Responding to the blueprint of the Divine architect,
All we mortals can do for this amazing place is to protect
All that comes within our remit as caretakers of this Earth,
To quell the wanton killing and prevent famine and dearth.
Respect for every kingdom and every species is paramount
There is no problem, disaster or want that we cannot surmount
We have the gifts if only we could accept our status and believe
For every mistake we make there is an immediate reprieve.
Co-creators, believe who you really are, join the Divine Gardener
Who created the blueprint for everything, including you!
With Free-will you are free to choose. You are not a select few,
But one of many who have the courage to choose to be a creator.
