I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.


Back to Gardening

Today we planted

our tomatoes before May

parsley and lettuce

in terra cotta

painted with bright acrylic

designed by children

one on either side

a sidewalk chalk art display

and a small step down

where we pushed new soil

my large hand next to your small

fingers in the dirt

next year will be more

herbs to season my entrees

make us feel at home

this temporary

clay potted city garden

with hope for new days

it's hard to garden in the city, with limitations, but it is possible....wishing, for you, a large yard in a good gardening climate. :)
