Kelly says in “The orchard”
“Bright shapes in the dark garden, The gardenless stretch of old yard, sweetened now by the half-light as if by burning flowers. OverTune. First gesture. The gesture, the window frame composing the space, so it seems as if time has stopped, as if this dark, this winter grass, plated with frost, these unseen silent birds might stay forever.

All our murals, pictures of gardens and presiding deities, things painted on plaster to keep the dying company, a toppled jar, a narrow bird, an ornamental tree with no name…might stay forever.
As if I wanted to stop the time and leave the garden as it is and don’t let it die. The garden “ as it is a symbol of paradise in persian rugs concept design” I wanted the paradise to stay forever in silent. I want to live in paradise. I keep my paradise alive.
