My garden grows with little help from me,
Displaying twenty shades of verdant hue,
In awe, I bow to beauty, simplicity,
That a “Kiss of the Sun” can do.
The daffodils and lilies get their clue,
From nature’s thawing earth and sunlit days,
To pop, precision-like, gay impromptu,
A feast for humble eyes on which to gaze.
Each spring the orchestration tunes to play
its symphony, profound, for human hearts,
To feel, to hear, to see the vast display,
Nature’s palette, infinitesimal art.
A patchwork quilt of lushness now unfolds,
Creation’s beauteous blanket for the soul.

“with little help from me” … I’m sure there’s a lot more help than you may think! Maybe just your gaze, and your energy…
Yes our gardens need our TLC, and for the record, I do talk to my house plants, as well. Thanks for stopping by!
I like the imagery here, and if this is your 23rd poem of the month, I’m even more impressed!
Thanks – the end of the month draws near:) I just did my Sunday offering. Once the kids and grandkids come for dinner, thinking time is at a premium. Thanks for commenting.
This is so gorgeous, it almost made me cry. I feel the same way about what nature gives us. Lovely use of the prompt, too.
That is so nice to hear. Thank you for your comment.
Beautiful garden and beautiful poetry – I’ve always had a fondness for the sonnet form and it’s nice to see one unexpectedly. You painted the picture really well.
Thank you. I’ve tinkered with various poetic forms and I am finding the sonnet form a satisfying one. I also love the villanelle, as a challenging but very colorful and rhythmic form of expression. Thanks for your comment.
A poem as lovely as a spring day. It’s so nice to finally see all the new growth and flowers blooming.
Thanks, Tara. Spring always makes me feel alive. Today, I’m planting a new azalea, next to the Lily-of-the-Valley patch in my yard.
