Saturday Garden–dVerse Open Link Night

We work in the yard
morning to eve. Savoring,
touching, smelling spring.

Earth, moist and ready
welcomes her lover’s caress,
encloses his seed.

Vegetable seedlings,
started inside months ago,
finally at home.

Colorful roses,
flagrantly fragrant perfume,
tantalizes, tempts.

The Holiday’s past,
thoughts of young lives lost in war—
memories linger.

Resting on the deck,
we enjoy a gentle breeze
and one another.

May this explain why I’m so late at showing up at the pub with my “photo-haiku montage” for Open Link Night, hosted by Mary. There’s still time. Stop by, read and add a poem of your own!

    Beautiful pics Victoria! How wonderful it is to be friends with Mother earth. It’s a luxury a privilege in fact. Obviously it complements your golfing enthusiasm! Great take!

    The haiku are very pretty, & the photos marry well with them. I Love how you’ve paid homage to the Fallen, in this series about rebirth. Nicely done. – OneVoicePoetry, per Vivienne (1 of the 6)

    What a beautiful series, Victoria. Loved the haiku and the photos. All the young lost in war have been in my mind a lot lately. When we enjoy holidays we always need to keep them in mind. Glad you made it to Open Link, Victoria. I always enjoy your work.
