emergent green

 

spring’s first green mirage

tulip swords salute warm sun

birdsong resurgence

garden gnome poem

 
 
my garden is…

a nurturing place

rejuvenating space

my garden grows…

green food for health

veggies’ bountiful wealth

my garden knows…

thorn pricks can hurt

worms benefit dirt

my garden shows…

shoes track in mud

fingernails collect crud

my garden flows…

slime trails of slugs

bees’ honeyed hugs

my garden hoes…

weeds will NOT win

squeaks windmill spin

my garden chose…

to raise leafy praise

for long summer days

Joining with poetic gardeners at dVerse Poets on Kim’s garden theme!

looking for eden

caretakers of earth

placed in garden for purpose

listen to the soil

all creatures on green planet

need resources to sustain

contentment is green

Earth’s new spring green

sings a theme serene

for ears and eyes keen

to creation’s pastoral scene.

 

On hills’ grassy sheen

fresh rain-washed clean

sheep shearer has seen

fluff-puff wool to glean.

 

A poets’ paradise pristine,

if you know what i mean.

 

 

For dVerse Poets “green” quadrille challenge and with my apologies to Luci Shaw 🙂

 

green writes its own haiku

spring’s pale green raindrops

cling trembling to bare branches

spatter on sidewalk

_____

enslaved boy set free

patrick loved his enemies

truth drowns in green beer

_____

swords of irises

pierce soil and snow to touch sun

rising from bulbs’ tomb

 

lenten trail

 

spikes of succulent

dormant life’s sharp green focus

point of redemption

the flowers in your heart

high (organic green) tea

My response to Kristjaan’s “high tea” invitation!

Perankan-High-Tea

zhena’s gypsy tea

coconut chai aroma

 taste a splash of cream

who’s the big green dude?

 

 

The Thinker by Rodin (Wikipedia)

A contemplative philosopher?

intense, that’s for sure

(notice the curled toes)

but perhaps he’s a…

 

defeated athlete

flexing male model

confused caveman

rejected lover

famous architect

benched ball player

death row inmate

taxed accountant

jolly green giant

 

whoever he is,

he’s gotta be thinking…

where did I leave my clothes??
