Puzzled Plants

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Tuesday Platform
Well, honest poets, how fare you? Hath spring arrived in the Garden, or autumn? Welcome to the Tuesday Platform, where your host has of late been swimming in romantic poetry. Please feel welcome to join me in the pond, and to share your own poem here, romantic or otherwise.

Warm weather comes too soon.
One group of irises
bloom. Temperature drops
thirty degrees. Tiny apples
appear on tree. Alas, other
irises pine. A see-saw of
warm and cool has our garden
perplexed. What will happen
next? Parsley, oregano
are fit and hearty. Lavender
was a bit tardy, but is springing
to attention now. Summer swept in
for a cameo appearance. Autumn
has lately said farewell. Let us
cede to Spring’s realm.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
