THE GARDEN OF OPHELIA

One more day of confinement

Between pineapple sprouts and needles

 

Alone but accompanied

 

One more day

I look through the window

 

I’m being held captive

I’m sick

They keep me captive

But I can still feel free

 

In my home

On my small terrain

Between nature and wildlife

My coronavirus shelter

It’s a small ecosystem that houses my soul

 

And I’m loved by Mother Earth

While people die

 

I open the door

Looking for an answer

Flowers of red bottles

Have blooming during the quarantine

 

Under the red bottlebrush flowers

There’s a green tapestry

Of water pearls

Sprinkled with yellow flowers

And tender lilac thistles

 

I’m captive in a garden

What a pleasure for the senses!

Ah, my Australian flower bush!

You, who survived the storm “Gloria”

That knocked down dozens of pines around

Then came the pandemic

And the trees were human beings

 

Again the grey sky has been crying for three days

Moistens the earth

Day and night

Greenery spreads over the fallen pines

Gloria!

Dozens of birds sing with the rain

That caresses the treetops

 

The horizon opens up to hope

Wherever death was

Life is born

 

Butterfly hour

The nap of the chrysalis

Sun praise

Spring afternoons

Ah, Ophelia!

To be or not to be

 

For the song of a bird

For the crying of a child

We’re going to get it all

Ah, Ophelia!

Make sure casualties are praised as a hero
