Summer Gardens

This garden of mine is the same garden that was flogged by the angry hand of winter into a shape I did not recognize. Now it
pushes new images of flowers and green variations of leaves and the approving nod of elephant ears in the winds. I sit and think the world cannot be all bad. Even the new grave of my cat who left us quickly seems to speak of the joy and resiliance of the little creature. He will be nourishing the new peach tree planted beside him just as earlier cats are buried under the grapes at the top of the hill. Peace sits unobtrusively on the sidelines while
we enjoy our world.
I cannot remember a time of more serenity than this summer even
with various tragedies that have happened in the human world. Is life putting itself in shape for me when I leave it? Hopefully not for a few years yet.
In winter there was everything to fear from nature; now there is only welcome. The yin/yang of the universe is reaffirmed, and I
am grateful for it.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
