green dreams

Leave a comment

the catalog arrived today
injecting green into my thoughts
lush garden dreams now underway

vast lettuce rows not puny pots
rich hills of beans with tongues of fire
espaliered trees of downy apricots

splashed color stokes my fierce desire
until the bubble pops and I fall back to earth
my garden plot is small, the barrow needs a tire

a reset needed for this year’s rebirth

NaPoWriMo Day 5: the prompt was exotic seed names, using one in a poem. I had a yen to dabble once again with rhyme and a bit of humor, and chose the terza rima: aba bcb cdc d. A simple yet rewarding form. Enjoy!
