A Visit To My Keyhole Garden in The Front Yard

My Keyhole Garden

At the end of the concrete…

The end of concrete sits the Petunias,

a lavender petal points to the left

from Maple freshly planted as a gift,

an African type keyhole garden lies.

The middle there to catch daily compost

with elevation provided by log.

A head of cabbage holds a gentle frog,

A juicy tomato like from the coast.

A redistribution of our water,

from a brown desiccated artichoke,

within chicken wire covered with our waste.

So placed like an ancient lotus flower

whose color, leached into the soil, awoke

in desert, green.  Seems oddly out of place.

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website simplepoetics.weebly.com. The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
