where you can hide from a humdrum life.
previously ignored subtle tunes of nature.
while the wind ruffles the pond into waves.
and lean over to catch the perfume of lilies,
goldfish flash silver and gold as they play in cool depths
and you realise there are worlds within worlds
and your spirit soars and worries gain perspective.
to relax and regain the inner strength
to face the realities of the world again.
for the tranquility it brings you.
