Eden’s Garden Path by Diana Bloem

The gravel was hard and wiry while the yellow bamboo barricaded the front. The shells were coiled around the blue star creepers while the hummingbirds aired on the perennials. The crushed stonecrop was damp underfoot while the water cradled sunlight. The sea roses lazed against the stone while the daisies invited wireworms. The air bounced back slitting the butterflies while they were feeding. The beetles used their forceps to leap from the bridge while the sawflies hooked to the carrots. The earwigs displaced the ivy while the twigs spiralled hundreds of  eggs. The blossoms plagued the corn while the matches lay like a foetus. Yali was at the rear end twigging the tulips with the axe.
