dVerse’ 10th Anniversary Celebration Week — Poetics — My Garden on 071321

The edges of my garden curl along
green fuzz, concrete, and stone.
Its haphazard, organic growth is
both playland and harvest zone;
where ants climb and dragonflies
wheel; where rainbow sways among
today’s sky offering.

Claudia Schoenfeld, one of the co-founders of dVerse, is today’s host for Poetics. We are celebrating the 10-year anniversary of dVerse this week. Claudia says:
So are you in for a bit of garden poetry writing?
Write about your own, your neighbour’s or your city’s garden – or one that only exists in your imagination. Write about harvest, growth, decay – where ever the word “garden” takes you.

  1. Both playland and harvest zone… we need them both, which is maybe why we love those gardens so much.

    How pretty you garden does grow.. SO many textures. The stone, and the fuzz of moss. and the textures of sound, the dragonflies…and even a playful rainbow. Nicely done.

      Sometimes the fuzz is more irritating than other times, but it is what it is 🙂 Thank you so much, Sanaa for your always supportive comments.

      Yes, I do, Misky. Thank you 🙂 Many of them in the yard are the product of forgetful squirrels. I planted a hill of them also and cannot wait to see it in bloom.

    Love the ‘feel’ of your poem …. the fact that you HAVE a garden resurrects a twinge of jealously.

      Thanks, Helen 🙂 My mom used to have a big yard with lots of flowers. Now she lives in a small rental home. She does container gardening for the most part now. Do you have space for that??

    I especially admire the enjambment of dragonflies / wheel, how it makes the entire pen active and alive ~
