The Herb Garden

The Herb Garden

 
Parsley
sage
rosemary and
thyme

Cats sleep in the sun
butterflies and bees
flit and flutter by
collecting nectar
sweet scents
fill the air

Wafted away to distant shores
whisked by aromas
to distant lands
lands of adventure and promise
dreams flood my heart
and mind
as the herb garden fills
my every breath

Lemon balm
mint
basil and
tarragon

Summer breezes
tease my olfactory senses
the fresh mown lawn
sets my nerves a tingle
Blooming roses
are filling the air
with their own delicate perfume

Honeysuckle dreams
my soul yearning for
the bright blue skies
I want to fly
I want to cry
the herb garden holds me
in rapture
captured
in the magic
enthralled in the blanket
of summer scents

Parsley
sage
rosemary and
thyme
