remember me

Joining Victoria Slotto and dVerse poets in the garden…


 

robin dips in birdbath

tiller turns black loam
to plant potatoes early

sugar-snap peas on fence
deep red geraniums in pots

pick peppers and ripest
tomatoes for pint jars
of homemade salsa

memories embedded in
rubber palm, fabric back
of mom’s garden gloves

    I was hoping my farmer friend would show up. This really touched me, Lynn, thanks to the very special last stanza. It gave me the same feeling that I have when I wear something of my mother’s.

    Beautiful imagery! I agree with Sanaa. The inclusion of memories from your mom’s gardening gloves was a nice touch.

    This is absolutely exquisite, Lynn! I especially love the image of; “sugar-snap peas on fence/ deep red geraniums in pots.” 💝
