Planting Beans

propping the shovel hoe and rake
spooling out twine plunging the stakes
kneeling dimpling the harrowed plot
thumbing simple tombs in the pocks
releasing the pink dusted bombs
dozing over dirt with a palm

a display of faith this arming
counting on another rising
their pearl green necks rolling
their respective stones exploding
revealing in each yawning
seed applauding

a leaf a tongue
the dumb report


  1. Having been working in my yard for a few months, this post really made me smile. You captured the hope of planting quite nicely!

  2. Molly Jo,
    Thanks for circling back by, and for your kind comment. See that your blog has a new design - nicely done!
