“I hope you all are having lovely weather! It is moving into summer and with the thought of summer comes…Gardens! Large ones, small ones, container gardens, gardens on terraces and porches.”

“So get out there, and garden! or write a poem about memories of a garden or gardening, walking in the warm soil of a veggie garden, the smell of roses – anything pertaining to a garden!  BONUS! Share a pic of your garden, even if at this point it is just a few sprouting plants.”

Marion guards red plant


Two Perennials

Two perennials standing guard
in our yard with extra protection
by Marion. Our back wall hopes
to have cherry tomatoes, and we
already have basil, oregano, cilantro,
and lavender. Heavy rains produced
quick gains in all our plants.

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.
