Sky Father Relents

Sky Father is angry this spring
Across the street, back and forth
Brother squirrel races
To fallen friends, unfortunate
In their travels
My tomato friends patiently
Wait, shelf-bound, at home depot

June 7th...

Finally, a break!
Stakes shived weeks ago
Hear me coming!
Welcoming their heirloom mates
Goliath, Black Krim, and Mortgage Lifters
All settle in, my hands busy

Favorite herbs, Thai Basil, Lemon Thyme
And forgotten Sage, guard the
My bean pole teepee, long a
Staple of my garden
Still waits, for the soak
To settle

    I hadn't taken an opportunity to read your work again. So glad I'm here. This piece was very emotional, yet fun in a weird way. I really enjoyed this!

    Hi Jimbo, A magical garden of imagery and lively poetic verse. Great combination for feeling the accomplishment and serenity :)

    What an interesting poem. We (well my wife really) seems to be having problems this year. Every thing is coming up late. Must be the weather. At least we are getting some tomatoes, strawberries and sweet peppers. They sure are delicious and better than store bought. Have a great day!!

    I could just see your garden waiting for the rain to slow down so that you could put in the stakes and run the runners of the beans up the stake..Enjoyed reading your creative and unique work..Sara
