Garden Muse

She walked along the beds,

Hands trailing over stakes

Heavy with vines

And sugar snaps.

Orange peeked

From underneath green hats

Far too wild for small heads.

Blushing tomatoes danced

Cheek to cheek

With peppers.

She smiled.

The garden will make

Good salad




For the dVerse quadrille challenge

    • Thank you, Lucy. I’m so glad you liked it. I don’t have a garden now, but had one growing up, with vegetables and fruit trees and volunteered upstate some summers on a small farm. It is always delightful to be close to one’s table. Part of the reason I love Farmers Markets so much, so that even in the City there can be a bit of that connection, if by proxy.

  1. Na’ama Y’karah,

    My “garden” this year consists of a couple of hanging baskets of flowers, an ever-proliferating coleus plant and two planters…one of basil and the other dill weed. (Both great additions to a salad. πŸ˜‰ ) Love the verse. I’m not ready to take on another prompt challenge….yet. Well done my poetic friend.

    Shalom and hugs,

    • Thank you, half-dolphin friend! I have no garden at all these years, being that my City apartment faces north and has too little direct sunlight for good growing. BUT, I have a little bamboo plant, which seems to manage to survive here … and I’m particularly successful at growing shoots out of potatoes and yams … πŸ™‚ Green onions are managing to recreate themselves, too. We do what we can, eh? πŸ™‚
