One morning when I walked in the garden,
I saw Miro the donkey whispering in a man’s ear.
So I asked the man :”What did Miro tell you so secretly ??
And what you think the man told me?”
He said:” The veggie garden has a big secret : at dusk, when the sun gets sleepy , the veggies and the fruits gather
for a miraculous and colorful party”.
Moreover , the garden’s name is : ” The Cyclamen Garden” and under papaya tree and squash leaves,
between the slides and swing and among the flowers ,
a masked carnival unfolds.
An old ,large cucumber watches over the carnival like
a sentinel.He has seen all the masked carnivals and he
knows every mask in the Cyclamen Garden.
Tomatoes dress in odd
Large papayas with blue eyes.
Peppers, tomatoes, onions and zucchinis
start up the colorful fireworks.
Red cherries , as flashlights, spread a miraculous light that
nobody can see but the masks in the Cyclamen Garden.
One day when little Libi came back
from the garden, she brought home
a red ….lit up…cherry, and she said:
“Look what I found in the garden” !!
And then we told her
the secret of the garden.
