a garden lai

This is my attempt at a “lai”.  You can learn more about the form at dVerse

 

look out my window
garden plants on row
i see

green beans, potato,
snap peas, tomato
must weed

good seeds that we sow
cause blessings to grow
freely

    There’s something about this form that produces brisk, no nonsense poems. I like your notes to self and imagine the plants standing to attention in their rows.
