Mnemosyne's Advice

This is what I need right now, right here,
in the depths of winter at the heart of my despair:

the colors of flowers-
heliotrope and pink,
periwinkle and crimson,
citron and violet,

the sound of their names:
larkspur and foxglove,
cyclaman and daisy,
delphiniums and lilacs.

I need a burst of sunshine, the caress of a breeze,
the absense of snow and the presense of butterflies,
bees over-laden with nector, birds building nests,
sweet honey scented air and vast, endless skies.

I need the garden in Lemuria today
Mnemosyne was right.
