Under branches extending
through lull and through strife,

we trust there's a plot
in the garden of life,

where yielding our view
with a heart that won't harden

will cultivate hope
in the life of the garden.    

Faisal Grant, May, 2011.


  1. Hello Faisal:
    This is beautifully expressed and beautifully presented. A work of art in itself and in all ways.

    And, of course, or so we believe, there is always hope.

    Have a lovely and relaxing weekend.

  2. Jane and Lance, in Budapest, I hope you're feeling top of the world.
    We all need a relaxing weekend; may yours be graciously relaxed as well. And thankyou, Faisal.

  3. That is just beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing that and have a wonderful weekend!

  4. You're really getting the hang of some of the advantages of modern technology aren't you, Faisal? Nicely done.

  5. Thanks, CR - poetry's as alive as ever, I hope, even if it's been swamped by other media.

    Peter, anything to do with technology/science/mechanics my comprehension is stumbling. Nice though to come to grips with some of it, where it serves a purpose. And thanks.

  6. Dear Faisal, what a creative post, both word-wise and photographically. I do love metaphors of the garden to describe life. cheers, catmint

  7. Beautiful Faisal. I see I have a lot to discover here. Lucky me.
