Garden Song

by Ron Reed

Only just now
have I taken the time to sit outside
on an uncommonly cool night
to take in the breeze
and listen to the orchestra of crickets
filling the air with cheerful cadence
I can see the garden
the plants take on an iridescence
in the moonlight
I can count the flowers
I miss the gardener
the crickets sing on

    ‘I miss the gardener…’ very nice and meaningful line.You slowly look up at the ‘flowers in the sky’ and start counting with a thankful heart.Well, this is where this poem has taken me!
