Japanese Garden

Waterfall at Japanese Gardens

 

Japanese Garden

(A Free Style Poem)

.

.

I came upon

a garden.

One like they have

in Japan.

.
It really left me speechless,

As I saw

The sights it had.

.
Forget about clocks,

As you watch

the mystic spot.

.
You’ll lose your sense of time,

while

earthy mystery unlocks,

in primal patterns

of stones,

with marbled history,
as written in the rocks.

.
Burnished

By the wind,

.
Sanded striations

of white,

and gray,

and rusty brown blocks.

.
They lurk in a basin.

Reflections

on the surface play.

.
Inverted images,

mirroring

their master’s  mood.

.
Projecting

something good,

.
A feeling understood

Within our soul.

.
Tranquility

greets the eye,

where Waterfalls whisper

their ancient rocky lullaby,

.

while water

trickles down

to rule

the pool.

.
I stand

by a twisted  Juniper.

Pruned

And sculpted

to please

Mankind.

.
Transfixed

and

speechless.

.

Author Notes

This is a waterfall located in the Ordway Japanese Garden at Como Park in Minnesota, that I recently visited. 


A simple free Style poem. No formal structure, some rhyme but no formal scheme.
