that garden

a poem to Patrick Brock 
about “African garden”
a picture sent from Mozambique, right now.

 
that garden is not just a garden
it has two trees and three thousand
African beats, lion and bee sounds between the leaves
can you also listen to this?

that garden is just a garden, i know,
not what i’m saying but what you’re seeing:
some green patch behind a grey building where you work
can you feel the infinite silence inside
what does it mean?

there are no lions or bees at that garden
just some grass, one by one saying the same
they are saying “who are you? why don’t
you stay here one minute more,
resting from your travel and waiting for the announcement
that a new life is arriving, your son, your daughter,
something new”?

that garden is not just a garden
it’s just a picture to me
it’s a chorus, singing the African beat
they are what you can do
with your grey and your green sides together

that garden is just a garden?
i’m not right, but this is just a poem…
