Must It Be Understood ? ? ?


“I’ve written

some poetry

I don’t understand



~ Carl Sandburg



Elfje:   (also known as a Cinquain)



homonym, homophone

similar but different

sounds like but not





true spring has arrived

jasmine fragrance fills the air

sinuses react




the jasmine, the jasmine, the blooms proliferate
the arbor moans under the vines weight
the fragrant aroma wafts through an open window
for the chickadees there is a convenient pillow

every blossom so intricately designed
as a host there is a scrumptious feast refined
just like snow flakes there are never two the same
for the Great Creator there is a miracle to acclaim

the garden is a frame for the artists blank canvas
colors and shapes developed like a poems stanzas
Mother Nature provides the pallet of a rainbow
the gardeners blueprint is their personal trousseau

delightful, wonderful, awesome, a subject never boring
real or imagined, my your garden always be most adoring.


ME and the Boss
