Written for: dVerse Poets, Poetics: Johnny’s Garden (posted by Kim)
The challenge is to write a poem about a garden. It can be a real garden (yours or someone else’s), a fantasy garden, a fictional garden, such as The Secret Garden, the garden of live flowers in Through the Looking Glass or the garden in Lady Chatterley’s Lover, a biblical or historical garden, for example the Garden of Eden or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. All you have to do is take us there – and you don’t have to buy it!
(Posting this Open Link, having missed the entrance to the garden.)
Flowers, shrubs, and maple trees
fragrant herbs and vegetables too.
Obvious need for honeybees
who have their job to do.
Among these basic garden sights
are butterflies, turtles, ladybugs.
Difference is they’re not statues or lights
they all speak to me, sans involvement of drugs.
