Time to Dream of Garden


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



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



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

    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
