nepenthe of nepenthes

Compelled to her feet
He reminded her of the Garden.
It kept her walking…

Breathed to her healing
the Leaves’ Scent from the Garden.
She exhaled
running

to Light
piercing through dimensions
outlining her shape

the distant memory of tears
welling up
and spilling
on the River drenched Fruit.

She was flying …

 
Ezekiel 47:12
Psalm 34:18
Rev 22:1,2
Isaiah 40:31

    Very nice poem… do you know the Van Morrison song, In the Garden? It is perhaps second only to Into the Mystic for me in his vast and brilliant catalog of work.

      Thank you so much, it’s a personal favourite.
      My goodness, it’s been ages since I’ve listened to Van Morrison. I’ll have to get reacquainted. The words to this song are beautiful. Thanks for sharing it! And thank you for all of your feedback, I really appreciate it!
