Garden reality

Chewed stalks brown corn Skeleton dead heads of sunflowers rotten tomatoes and watermelons fruitless vines and weeds waist high Purple salvia blooms shine Orange Marigolds **ideas--------- blooms blown Weeds shown stalks bare Full hare scalp bare no hair flower power showers Sour pity hour Powdered sugar icing tower the sweet wower

oh, this is another awesome write of yours my dear, Doris. I've almost missed it. My apology if I drop only now to give you an answer of your question when you read my poem, My Quiet Place. Yes, i live within the school premise and the room is offered for us free. It is so quiet here like now, Sunday. Not on Sat. because we've class here from Mon-Sat. ( whole day) All i can hear are the sounds of birds, squirrels and the wind coming from my electric fan. It so humid today. THANKS AGAIN! hug: LG

SO clever!! I love gardens in their fullness and in their decline. Your imagery sent my mind awhirl back to times when I could put my hands in the earth...
