A Garden Planted With Love

I have a little garden that I love, where the many plants of my childhood grow; (I did this to honor mother above) where flowers flourish like a wild meadow. Where the many plants of my childhood grow, there are petals in every sweet hue; where flowers flourish like a wild meadow, there is sweet nectar for bees to go to. There are petals in every sweet hue, I love how fragile butterflies hover; there is sweet nectar for bees to go to, while butters' caress blooms like a lover. I love how fragile butterflies hover, sometimes a bright hummingbird comes to whirl; while butters' caress blooms like a lover, where the many song birds sing, swirl and twirl. Sometimes a bright hummingbird comes to whirl, (I did this to honor mother above) where the many songs birds sing, swirl and twirl, I have a little garden that I love. _____________________________ July 29, 2020 Poetry/Pantoum/A Garden Planted With Love Copyright Protected, ID 20-127-424-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the contest, Petal, buds, blossoms, bees, birds, butterflies! sponsor, Silent One Second Place

Elaine, it was my pleasure to read your first 3 chapters, they were wonderful, yes, I have finally got the courage to write under my own name, I was hiding for years and years behind pseudonyms _Constance

Gina, thanks for the compliment, I never realized how much I learned about gardening by following my mom around her garden helping her (it was huge) but I guess it sunk in because people always my garden is beautiful_ Constance

I'm sure your mother is honored by the colorful variety in your garden, Constance. Your repeating lines are employed skillfully and I wish you well in the contest! Hugs, Carolyn

Carolyn, my mother had a huge garden and taught me about planting, I promised her I would always have a garden so I do it to honor her. I find Pantoum a bit hard to write, hope I did it right, thanks for visiting _Constance

Beautiful sights and sounds in your garden and a special place for you to go to-- for it evokes memory of your mother. Great flow to your pantoum, Constance.
