It is a hot Midsummer’s day. The sun is shining like a fireball; the clear sky is as blue as the bright, glittering ocean; the birds sing joyfully, but silently, as they search high and low for, even the smallest sip, of water. The trees are still, almost feeling sorry for the surrounding desert-dry plants. But the beautiful flowers in the outside fields are very well-looked after, as some grow large, and some multiply. The hot wind blows, but very gently. Almost like there is no wind at all – the sun is taking over it! The air is empty.
I always walk into the high fields. Alfalina’s Garden. It doesn’t look like a proper garden – like a back garden that people could usually play in. Better. More wonder hides within and it’s extremely special. To me anyway. Everyone hates the garden – because of its tall plants and ‘dangerous’ animals. I don’t blame the animals for being afraid. It’s the humans that endanger their species.Â Also, it’s the beauty of nature that everyone hates. So what if the plants are too tall? It’d be perfect for hide-and-seek.
I open the small, rusty gates and walk in. The beautiful Summer sight was better in view in the garden. I run through the fields of green as if I am soaring and see a butterfly. It gives a relaxing feeling to the palms as it flutters into them. I feel free – like all the animals I see. They aren’t afraid of me and this makes me feel less lonely. Nature and all wonderful animals are my friends.
IÂ stare into the fields – they were never ending. I always wonder:Â Could I possibly grow up, enjoying the beauty? Could I grow up, coming here every day? I feel like home here. This garden gives me a lot of time to think – as this is the Garden Full Of Wonder.
