I Haunted the Gardens

I haunted the gardens
While in body alive
I thought about balance
Essential to thrive

I floated and studied
The plants vs, grass
I floated and studied
Fruits vs. wrath*

I worried and suffered
Inside my own head
Hiding from others
Whose company I dread

I took in the sunshine
I took in the sounds
Waxwings, warblers
Trolley and hounds

Encouraged by hummingbirds
Discouraged by death
Without proper fences
The impure can tread

I'll pack up my turtle
I'll pack up my koi
We'll all move accordingly
Where simplicity buoys.**

-EVE Featherstone

*wrath - strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; ire.
