Raking the Rock Garden

you’re thinking
it’s time

to water
the mind

scape.

  1. Stopped by your yard today,
    saw you at work.
    My garden's waterlogged,
    wordweeds taking over.
    (Too much pouring ...
    not enough mindscraping.)

    I watch yours,
    in awe.

  2. Beautiful! Were you thinking of Kazantzakis? The poem took me back to the luminous experience of reading his book The Rock Garden... in itself a raking of my mind scape this sunny morning. Thanks, Vassilis!

  3. Annie,

    The ultimate compliment--your complementary poem, for which I thank you.

    Joe,

    Bull's eye! Thanks for hitting the target i.e. The Rock Garden--one of Kazantzakis' lesser known works but as you say, one of his most luminous.
