Time to Dream of Garden

I.

A new apple tree

in the center of my yard

it is good to want

 

Stock up on clay pots

buy organic potting soil

choose which bulbs to plot

 

Prepare to lay mulch

wake the wheelbarrow’s nap

move around smooth stone

 

This place I return

smell of soil and smell of spring

a pail for a seat

 

A list in Haiku

remember smallest detail

begin with the rake

 

Remove winter muck

start the work on raised planters

must pot Roses first

 

Fill large out door pots

with plenty of fresh pot soil

some composted mulch

 

Put on you work gloves

without last years weeds and thorns

rebuild space for green

 

II.

Mix my annuals

find home for returning bulbs

and perennials

 

Try luck with lettuce

variety of squashes

and decorative gourd

 

Throw some herbs in mix

along with garlic and fresh chives

a potato bag

 

Turn limited space

source of delicious fresh food

potted around yard

 

Time to get out there

manage time wisely again

build home for seedlings

 

Before the first sprout

this year will be the key year

change in production

 

To negotiate

a wise water strategy

previous sprinklers

 

Become mapmaker

who needs the light who does not

diversified lot

 

III.

Bland suburban stone

into one large vegetable

and flower garden

 

Here in my garage

seeds pots and gear I collect

throughout Winter months

 

The sunshine calls me

the soil is waiting for hand

a need to garden

 

These lines motivate

to set the hoe and shovel against wall

for an early start

 

With morning jacket

hot morning coffee held tight

a goal and a plan

 

Prepare garden space

based on homemade schematic

a dream of success

 

April is the time

when Earth wakes from its slumber

to share gift of fruit

 

Maybe Tomatoes

joyful possibilities

within every seed

Jamie Lee Hamann

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.

    Phyllis I already planted some bulbs and flowers and made a little succulent garden. I fear the vegetables are a little lacking this year except for tomato. Jamie
