Chanticleer

by Elouise

Chanticleer Pond Garden

the garden of my heart
sits quietly waiting
chairs placed side by side
beam with glowing luster

tadpoles swim
mosquitoes buzz
flowers dip and sway,
music from a springtime breeze
invites me out to play

lily pads provoke a game
of hopscotch cricket-style
dragon-flies flit overhead
and clap their wings for joy

cool water laps around the reeds
a gentle under-tone
announcing your arrival soon
to be with me
alone
