       I have always loved spring. It's always been for me when I feel alive the most. It gets in my blood. And this piece as well as this past spring have been for me the beginning of my own personal renaisance.

    dotsWithin A Grey Gardendots

    I've been walking
    around the garden
    surrounded by countless roses
    all of which are dead

    this once vibrant garden
    had been dressed in the most
    elegant mix of
    white, pink, and red

    but I find that
    I prefer it this way-
    surrounded by death
    feeling the numbness
    the cold has brought my hands

    this dead garden
    has brought me hope
    for I know spring will come
    with it the color shall return

    the sun shall warm
    my hands and neck
    that is when the garden,
    when I shall be reborn

      I got very confused after reading your description and then moving on to the first part of the poem. Death? What has that to do with spring?? Ahh but then all was revealed of course. I like it specifically for the reason that like the coming of spring itself, the poem blooms from something drab to something bright. Bright and sunny from John! Woohoo!

      by reading your poem, it made me visualize what you were talking about. The garden imagery was great. I felt the coldness in there.

      This is great, honest - as writing of course should be. there is something appealing in sadistic manner in a wilting beauty.

      Things that have wilted, that have lost their fragrance their innocence and beauty must die in order to be made new, reborn. I love the theme of this piece. I think you could make the piece more fluid somehow, but I like it. Let me know if you revise this.

      This is interesting, and in my opinion pretty good. I love how you talk about how the death of the garden helps you to await spring... there is no joy if there is no worser thing to compare it with. Good write.
