April Haiku #7685

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.

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
