Interesting... wondering what a garden mould is.
and what will sprout from it...such power in this
even though i do not know what you mean by 'mould' i still enter into this verse nicely.
There are three ways to read it in my mind:father's garden / mould works / in my handfather's garden mould works / in my handfather's garden mould / works in my handGarden mould (or mold) is the soil you plant flowers and vegetable in (as far as I know). Mould work means creating with gypsum.So the lyrical I is in his father's garden to mould something.Or he is having his father's garden sculptures in his hand.Or he feels the mould in his hands, which his father has produced in his compost heap.Best wishesRalf
"Or he is having his father's garden sculptures in his hand"...or the decorative pots we have in gypsum, this was my reading, Ralfwishes, devika
Yes, Devika. And there should be some more layers. My idea was just to show that mould (or mold) means life! Creativity! am very happy this was not myterious to you :-)Best wishesRalf
no Ralf -- not that mysterious :)and garden itself signifies life...mould...has this meaning of carving/shaping something...like character :)wishes, devika
thank you, Ralf. your clarification mould makes this even more engaging for me.
you are very inspired by your family Ralf, its lovely to read
...I am so sorry Ralf, but the only association that i had was the mould working itself up and down, being full of fresh, pink earthworms - and this is, for the mould - being mould - just a wonderful thing, chosen as preferred habitat by earthworms just means that it has become perfect, real good earth...fine work in your hands, and I really mean it...LGG.
Thanks a lot everybody. I am very happy about your kind comments.Best wishesRalf
I like the layers in here!
Wonderful lines there, and brilliant interpretation... Very deep stuff...
Thanks a lot, Gautami; and great you came in with a friendly comment, The Dark Lord.Best wishesRalf
