Friendship Garden

by Margarita Engle and Ellen Olinger

Friendship Garden
tame peacocks stroll
through wild violets

                                                    Margarita

gentle
spring
rain
whispering
my
prayers

                                                    Ellen

Kettle Moraine
frogs singing
Easter Day

                                                    Ellen

spring morning         without books
in the hammock
poetry

                                                     Margarita

marsh marigolds
beginning
sunrise

                                                     Ellen

Earth Day
winged maple seeds
ready to fly

                                                     Margarita

  1. The first one, “Friendship Garden” is my absolute fave, Ellen!!! I can just see the vibrant colors of the peacocks and the violets! And I love Margarita’s dedication–rich and priceless!!! God bless you.
