Word Play Wednesday: Beautiful Garden by Biyai Garricks

Welcome to Word Play Wednesday!
Word Play Wednesday is a weekly feature of written and spoken word poetry. I will be sharing my written and spoken word poems in addition to poems by other wonderful Poets both past and present. If you are interested in sharing some of your poetry, feel free to buzz me and we can work something out.

I hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our thoughts, feelings and rants and in many ways relate to some of them.

This week I will be sharing a poem I recently wrote while as part of an exercise given at a poetry workshop I attended. We were being taught how to write poetry in different forms and this was my attempt at writing a sonnet. I really like this poem and I hope you like it too.

Beautiful Garden

My fear of the dark

Lays me flat at every door

I have washed this dirty cloak

Many times

And vowed never again

But as night draws near

I let them wipe their feet again

A fool I must be.

Now I know never to go back

For the taste of freedom

Has me drunk with life

Although I forgive every wrong

I have learned to keep a fence

Around this beautiful garden
