prairie calls my name

windy weather
calling the flowers by nameIMG_2785
each nods

depth of a flower
flying away with the bee
some mystery

My “fusion” haiku/ troiku:

wildflowers nod heads
while bees hum mystery song
prairie breeze summer

wildflowers nod heads
as gentle wind nudges clouds
sleepy afternoon

bees hum mystery
in honeyed depth of pistil
sweet nectar distills

prairie breeze summer
delivers pollen and seeds
native plants flourish

dirt is to dig

IMG_6649

 

it’s spring! i need to dig in dirt
worm’s work brings happiness
while birds and bees MAY flirt

oh spring! i need to dig in dirt
even if knees might hurt and
fingernails witness a mess

let’s sing! i need to dig in dirt
worm’s work brings happiness

 


Yes, I like to dig in the dirt. Worms make me happy because they enrich the soil. Everyone should have a little plot of land or a pot of dirt to dig in. Gardening is an elemental activity, part of our DNA code; our calling to work the ground and take care of the earth. Photo taken by me with one hand, holding favorite garden trowel with other 🙂
