The Garden of the Heart

Art is by Katherine

Unnameable the moment when it starts
The sun goes turns black and flowers die on the stalk
The agony in the garden of the heart

Unnatural rhythms subvert accountants’ charts
Poor nestlings feel the onslaught of the hawk

Untraceable the moment when it starts

For always seemed our love, and quiet its art
Banal the labels in a doctor’s talk
Of agony in the gardens of the heart

Speechless,cold and numb the separate parts
Each one with its indirection walks
Untraceable the moment when it starts

That one who knew our measure must depart
Wounds our sense of self now writ in chalk
Such agony in the gardens of the heart

Like a skylark trapped,untimely, caught
I the one time lover fear the night
So minute at the moment when it starts
Agony strips the garden of the heart
