Faint wind rustles reeds and cattails;

I open the hatch, expecting rain -- moon floods the lake.

Boatmen and water birds dream the same dream;

a big fish splashes off like a frightened fox.

It's late -- men and creatures forget each other
while my shadow and I amuse ourselves alone.
Dark tides creep over the flats -- I pity the cold mud-worms;
the setting moon, caught in a willow, lights a dangling spider.
Life passes swiftly, hedged by sorrow;
how long before you've lost it -- a scene like this?
Cocks crow, bells ring, a hundred birds scatter;
drums pound from the bow, shout answers shout.

community center & garden sanctuary


In this hurried world, the Garden of Ideas is a place to slow down.   To stop, look, and listen.  There is so much more to see, to hear, to smell, to taste, and to feel.    Wake up your senses in this place and become more alive.


Whether you take a self-directed stroll or participate in one of our programs, we hope you will leave renewed.
