Vigilant she toils, sweet attention planting
Violets, her favorite, delicate, fragrant flower
Valued for their deep, purple-blue petals
Visioning their success along with the
Vinca, viburnum, valerian and variegated ivy
Vining way up the sturdy oak
Victory will be had…with patience

Vandana Sharma introduces the Pleiades Form for us at dVerse Poets:

Uh, oh…I goofed.  The form is to use six syllables not six words.  I’ll try to redo it tomorrow…too late now!

Mira, almost two years old…gardening time with her wonderful other Grandma.

Here’s a recent photo of Mira taken while she was doing some important gardening with her other Grandma.  She’s wearing the very appropriate t-shirt that her Auntie bought her that says, Lettuce Turnip the Beet!  Mira will be two years old on September 3.

Irrevocable Trust

Google Images; Flower Garden

It is hereby prescribed

by the position of
the moon, the
will and trust of
seeds sown shall
create exceptional blooms.
Appointing an executor
to administrate the soil,
all continues on as planned
as the new earth is toiled.
The warranty is signed
and the planet guarantees
in accordance with the
climate, the contract is iron-clad.
With informed consent and
immunity for all, it is
acknowledged and granted
that we all share in the bounty.
The heirs of all those gone before
shall enjoy all rights and privileges
of the beauty displayed, and the
equity of life will thrive and flourish.
There will be no breach of peace
at the end of each day, as we
survey our land and the gifts it bestows.

Took up the challenge over at dVerse Poets to use action words of one profession to describe another:

I worked for several years as a legal secretary in a law firm where wills, trusts, contracts and corporate law were the main focus.  I used my experience there to describe gardening and sharing the earth’s bounty with all.

Gardening Jobs

With jobs at hand

The need arises

To start out early

In the garden

Pulling weeds

Clearing brush

Taming nature’s


Taking care

To trim just so

Helping flowers’

Continuing bud

Scrubbing bird baths

Filling them fresh

A service I love

For my garden friends

Replenishing feeders

With seeds aplenty

Also benefits

Our yard’s overhaul



Shaping shrubs



Lopping off limbs

Cut back’s needed

To control the advance

After winter’s

Harsh decline

The garden’s thriving

In summer’s clime

Monday Morning Writing Prompt:   Gardening


the earth,
hoe the weeds,
prepare the soil
for planting a tree.
You must dig deep and make
a gently rounded, high berm
to hold in the moisture that will
provide sustenance for its growing.
A tabebuia’s in the garden now.

Caring for it daily while giving love,
you’ll be amazingly rewarded
by its hardiness and beauty.
A bit of fertilizer
now and then, will keep it
strong and blossoming.
Yellow flowers
bloom en masse

My first attempt at an etheree.  These lovely Tabebuia  (Tab-a-boo-ya) trees bloom in the spring here in Central Florida.  They are especially spectacular when blooming by the water’s edge– their brilliant yellow being reflected in the water.  Also known as the Yellow Trumpet Tree for their trumpet shaped flowers.  They also come in  pink (Pink Trumpet Tree).

My entry for dVerse FormForAll–Etherees, Shape and Concrete Poems:


Lovingly nurture–

tend garden’s earthen bounty.

Joy transmits to both

plantings and humans alike,

Hibiscus smiles at the sun.

This is my entry for Potluck # 14 describing my pastime/hobby of gardening.
