The Tuesday Platform

Welcome to The Garden, dearest Toads and visitors. I hope you’ve been enjoying the Holiday Season. I, as always, have been mourning warm weather (and cursing an achy shoulder). But don’t pay much attention to that, you know what they say about me (and passiflora plants):

In summer,
my potted passiflora envies
trees whose roots run deep
into deliciously wild dirt.
In winter, she holds on
to the lush of her leaves…
grateful she’s not an oak.

Let’s get lost in poetry. Share an old poem or a new poem or, mayhap, a poem that doesn't care about her age (yes, today, all poems are ladies). Visit other Toads. Be merry in word, everyone.

do feel free to use my image
and again, be merry
