Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

In my Garden

Alhambra, Spain

Around my soul,
like around a Medieval Garden,
rises a Fortress.
In the middle is the Fountain:
the Heart.
When you look at me,
the gates open.
Come in freely.
As I am getting older
I spend more time by the Fountain
then in the Towers.
If you see something beautiful in this Garden,
pull it out,
replant it.
It is yours as much as it is mine.

So soothing and heartwarming!! Thank you so much for this lovely post, Vesna! My senses were lulled by the heart-opening warmth your poem has! I have never listened to this "alhambra". It is so beautiful! I only knew "Recuerdos de la Alhambra".

Vesna, this is a beautiful post. Your poem pulled me into the garden, made me want to feel the water trickle over my fingers. Because this is oh so true: As I am getting older
I spend more time by the Fountain
then in the Towers.

And I soooo enjoyed "Alhambra"...what a treat. Thank you!!

Somehow I got lucky and this poetry found me and then right after that i found this beautiful music.
I am so happy that you enjoyed it too dear Sapphire and Kittie, thank you for your warm comments and presence.

I'm a bit late, maybe, but I want to tell you that you have really a beautiful heart.
I enjoyed a lot your post, Vesna. How sensitive and sweet you are!:)

A Rose. :D
