Past the garden threshold, or: The far wall

A sijo

gravel glistening in puddles
past the garden threshold;
path between neat mown lawns, shrubs, trees
through lushest green to the far wall;
a second gate to the distant hills
has not been built by man.

โ€˜What do you seeโ€™ Prompt #158

For Sadjeโ€™s weekly #WDYS prompt, she offered the photo below as inspiration for writers to produce art.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

          Please feel free to call me ‘David’ because that is my first name.

          The word ‘ben’ simply means ‘son of’ in Hebrew, and my father’s name was ‘Alexander’ ~ I created this blog in his memory.

          I know it’s confusing because ‘Ben’ is also a popular name in English… I’m sorry about that!

          Much love,
