in a zen garden

    I love this poem. It makes me think of coming around a corner in a lush, wild garden setting filled with plant leaves trembling with life and suddenly BEHOLD, being surprised to find an expanse of a zen garden like a lake of small gray stones. A secret interlude to be observed; and then walking through it on a stepping stone path to lead the way, a kind of detached surprise. Noting how well planned and landscaped. Such care to maintain it. Hidden but not disguised And who knew?
