Rapture Garden

DSCN0128Cut thick vines in sun

below tall pine and silver maple shadow.


Plant scarlet acacias,

purple, red, yellow, and white rose bushes.


Spray oasis with rainbows.


Lift leaves and spread limbs of

peach, plum, apricot, and grapefruit dancers.


Caress ripe fruit, ravish succulent flesh

and lick lush juice.


Savor symphony of fragrances, hues, and flavors.

rapture garden staggers my senses,

energizes the spirit,

and lavishes me.

About Daniel C. Lavery

Dan’s writing shows his transformation from a child to an athlete and a Duke pre-ministerial student where he began to question ancient and arbitrary dogma. He graduated from Annapolis, navigated a Navy jet, and a ship to Vietnam, fell in love, turned peace activist and a civil rights lawyer for Cesar Chavez's UFW. His memoir, "All the Difference," describes the experiences, some humorous and others deadly, that changed his consciousness from a pawn to an advocate crusading for justice against some of the most powerful forces in America.
