Doditsu #0572

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


Dodoitsu #0572

Found pre made flower boxes

piled in the sagebrush outside

mixed in with pile of lumber

my garden awaits.

To sneak out of home at night

load my truck with scrap lumber

pick up these misplaced boxes

fill with mulch and soil.

To plant long promised Roses

along the side of my home

in this reused plywood box

pray for early bloom.

Fill in where dogs dug ditches

with boxes after a paint

a white primer with blue sky

mountains and some trees.

A space for my vegetables

a means to feed family

in these flower boxes found

under the sagebrush.

It seems the desert provides

a ray of hope shines on yard

this years efforts will be grand

I pray for good yield.
