April Haiku #2222

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


I stand in a field

of tan barren dry wheat stalks

all I do is stand.

I sit in barley

to see the sky through the bloom

my eyes collect tears.

Imagine colors

painted on the dry barren

fields where I lay down.

Days we spent forming

a labor of love this land

on Earth's creations.

To condense each plot

small space can grow so much food

in our own backyards.

To dream of orchards

colorful tangerine trees

or ripened mango.

Us in the middle

a glorious world of fruit

a lifetime supply.
