Gardening Anyway

by Phronesus Disegno

Age Group: Adult



I don't know how to garden
It's not one of my deeds
But something has compelled me
To plant some flower seeds.
Dirt gets under my nails
And mud smears on my hand
Such work it is to garden
That one small strip of land

Bugs fly and crawl around me
Sneak out from blades of grass
And just when I'm not looking
One bites me on my ... behind.
Past efforts I remember
With each try came a frown
My thumb was never green
Instead, it's rather brown.

A sudden growth of sprouts!
Did my bad luck just change?
Did I do this myself?
It's working! My, how strange.
With sprouts becoming leaves
At times, a couple flowers
What seemed like days and days
Time shortens into hours

Now butterflies and beetles
And fire ants dance with glee
Beneath the shining sunlight
And moonbeams' jubilee
Sometimes a bug still bites me
Mud washes from each hand
But now, it's not much work
My thriving strip of land

Forgetting times to water
The ground cracks from the sun
Yet still those lovely plants
None died, not even one...
Now wait a tootin' minute --
Those plants aren't from my seeds!
Good grief, my only comfort
Is having grown some weeds.
