Summer Harvest

Spring garden planted // anticipating new growth
Tomatoes, beans, and a grape vines on posts
Sunshine and summer rains // sitting in extreme heat
Produce fruits and vegetables with Zinnias so neat
Now bees and butterflies share the bounty
Beauty worth waiting for, seldom comes quickly

Today at d’Verse, Victoria Sloto ask us to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words using the word Garden. My little terraced  garden is one thing that has kept me inspired during this time. So much beauty and nature is all around us. It brings me joy and a few tomatoes and green beans as well.

  1. A wonderful garden and lovely poem Dwight,… and for me spring is around the corner… and I’m patiently waiting for planting season, … your last line is brilliant… and so poignant…

  2. Your garden looks so pretty and healthy. Zinnias grown by my dad in our garden were some of my childhoods favourite f memories, esp that pink colour your took picture of. I hadn’t seen them since growing up. Also sunflower, we had the small kind. Need to grow some now to provide childhood memories for my daughter.

  3. Your garden looks fabulous, Dwight! With all my shady trees, I am envious of your beautiful vegetables and flowers. Lovely, descriptive poem that seems to grow along with your garden, blooming at the end.
