Found Poetry from a gardening magazine. It reads:

rambling
stunners
help
with
ways
to
Choose
Everything

intriguing
with
five petal
CHARM
and
friendly
INSECTS

Your
Singular
letters
Grow the Wild
Lunar
dream
earth

AROUND
sweetly scented
BUSHBABIES

Did you
Not
Know
?

  1. There is something insouciant in this bit of writing!

    • Looked up insouciant and yes, care free it is: Gardening does that for one! Off to cover the strawberry patch with mesh wire to protect it from the monkeys!

      • I also like this word for the connotations it has of slightly sassy. I think of gardening as meeting lots of personalities, plat wise, and this poem reminded me of bright tones and faces. Love your comment about monkeys. Here I would say , cover the sunflower seeds with mesh to protect them from the birds, or fence to keep out the deer…

        • Indeed my thoughts went to sassy-like stuff at first. I think it’s the sound of the word. The fence for the deer and cattle for that matter, thankfully already stands. The birds can have the sunflower seeds, I grow them just for pretty anyway. I thought the other day there’s a limit to what one’d need to do to keep one’s food. Next thing I’m going to get a catapult and pelt the monkeys and baboons and hope it helps. Lost a whole loaf of bread to one of the little &*^%’s the other day. Happened to have a daisy-grubber in my hand & it got chucked at the monkey from sheer rage and frustration. Thankful to report it was a complete miss.
