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
