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

People wake…hungry
Rumbling tummies of children
Ovens to bake bread
V
I
Domestic chickens…
Eggs whipped for morning omelet
Side of potatoes

planting potatoes

bury in ground (like a grave)

wait…green sprouts will rise
