The Poem Garden

I have a little garden growing on a page. No mint, I beg your pardon. I hope that there is sage. It’s ideas I plant there to see what they will do. Each day I check to see where some precious seedlings grew. I feed and water them until they’re fully grown, but sometimes on a whim they’ve caught a breeze and flown. Poems are what I’m sowing and though I’ve reached full age, I think it’s me that’s growing as I garden on the page. 10.22.2018

You caught my attention with “No mint, I beg your pardon.” I agree as we write “together,” we all grow as a garden. A nice one.

This is an exceptionally great treatment of a poem growing out of the poet and vice versa. I'll be reading more of your work. Congratulations!

Wondrously conceived, composed and executed verse my friend. A wonderful garden indeed.. I grow mine each day, if the sun shines and the seed-words come to me to plant. A fav..
