my allotment garden...in collaboration with not all who wander are lost...
my allotment garden
is planted with heart felt memories and experiences that have nourished my wandering soul...
my creations in fiber and threads of colors
inspired by a young man who is autistic...a veiled mystery to behold
this child with a gentle spirit who has Graced my life...
his autistic spirit
is unfolding in his often slow movements of a gentle caterpillar...
with precise dance like movements waiting to reveal
the unfolding a silent expose
knowing the miracle of a butterfly
My allotment garden
is fertile with patient soils
and perennial flowers and indigenous wild grasses with the promise of seasons reborn in regeneration of brilliant colors.
Whispers on the gentle wind currents and dance in the sunlight
the gifts of the present... blooms on the daylily
Patience and calm quiet movements
and calm quiet moments
...the guardians of all artists.
Imagine and Live in Peace. Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
