The Garden of Bolinas

Listen to The Garden of Bolinas by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Escape From Reality by SizzleBird

From mezzanine to atrium
The greatest celebration
Most appraising congregation
On their feet in sheer amazement
Lend ovation to pursuit of truth
Resume of youth
In absolute
Such magnitude and grandeur of occasion

Wildflowers bloom through cracks in the pavement
Relaxed is the air they costume
Blackberries bulge to divulge information
Enrapturing fruit of the loom
Hummingbirds hum twee verse
Averse to regulation
While the garden of Bolinas
Wears the sweet perfume of Venus
With the keenness of regard
To farther ruminate the view
Renew to parchment
Every virgin spring in hymn of favour mused

Rising and falling
The blossoms are calling
The possums are all in a fluster
For tall grass they pass
With their green sleeves full mast
Have seldom reported such lustre
Barely a bluster interrupts the sense of calm
As mother nature bears fresh bud within her slender palms
Exquisite splendour she exudes
As not a leaf remains unmoved
To see her in the height of bloom
Resumed of youth
In absolute
With majesty fantastically and lavishly she charms

With open arms
She hugs the sun
Until its red scarf comes undone
Then moons the night stars
Just for fun
And grabs herself a home run fast
Too whip-smart to let a moment pass
When there are rumbas left to dance
Before the summertime advances

Planet earth is but a canvas
Begging for an artist’s take
And mother nature never wastes her paint

From mezzanine to atrium
The greatest innovation
Most amazing grace unchanging
At the peak of steeped engagement
Foreseen of deepest rooted truth
Resume of youth
In absolute
Such magnitude and grandeur of occasion
The garden of Bolinas
Dressed in sweet perfume of Venus
Is arena of our dreams articulation

Exquisite splendour she exudes
As not a leaf remains unmoved
To see her in the height of bloom
Resumed of youth
In absolute
With majesty fantastically and lavishly she charms

From mezzanine to atrium
The greatest celebration
Most appraising congregation
On their feet in sheer amazement
Lend ovation to pursuit of truth
Resume of youth
In absolute
Such magnitude and grandeur of occasion

  1. F*ck…. This is one heck of a magical masterpiece and I’m amazed by the word flow! Like Underworld who never seem to catch a breath.

    “Relaxed is the air they costume” 🌻

    1. Oh, Mouse. This one I hold perhaps dearest of all with regards to delivery so that means so much to hear your delight in its flow. Honoured and beaming in the sunlight you have so sweetly reflected back to me. 🌻

    2. Just listening to this and reading your comment again, and thought I’d flesh out this one for you a little. You see, Bolinas is a tiny coastal town just outside San Francisco and the most beautiful nirvana I have ever seen. Only artists live there and the population is in double figures. The hummingbirds I write about here were flapping their wings all about me as I marvelled at paradise. Another reason why this piece is special to me.

      1. My goodness that’s a beautiful sounding place to escape from insanity too, I’ll have a look online at some photos… No I don’t need to because the images won’t have the impact that this piece and the audio has 🌻💖
