The Lewes Gathering
We met again in the summer of 2012 in MisspellAny's magic garden.
LEWES GATHERING By Brian Clark
Many have offered to me their visions of heavens
Where strife is absent, peace and love prevail,
But they are hollow, just another tale.
The world remains conflicted, at sixes and sevens.
A dream: I found myself in such a place –
A beautiful garden with flowers, shrubs and trees
Skilfully, subtly chosen with care to please
The eye and so create a heavenly space.
The people too, not one cross word was spoken.
We felt as one as we joined hearts and hands
With fellow spirits winging in from many lands
To experience with us a love not merely token.
It was no dream. It happened on a Summer’s day;
I’m left with a warmth no one can take away.
