Poetry Challenge 22

The Lives of Plants

Here in the Interior, garden planting is going on with great frenzy. A fellow poet, Derek Burleson, is posting lists of plants he’s putting in his garden on his Facebook page—every day a new list: violas, zucchini, Early Girl, etc. So, start with a list of interesting plant names, then work them into a poem. But, let the poem drift away from plants to something else—a memory, a longing, a satisfaction, a dream.

(Thanks for the idea, Derek!)
