Spring Calves

Spring calves: spindly legs,
Shiny black coats, twitchy tails.
Placid cows chewing cud.

Garden Dirt

Dirt under my nails.
Purity and (w)holiness
of highest order.

First Planting

Gardening brings me
To my knees in prayer, praise,
Thanksgiving and pain.

March 3 was a fair spring day in East Tennessee after Friday's storms. I had the opportunity to plant spinach, broccoli, romaine and leaf lettuce. I also cleared beds that should have been cleared in the fall.

Gardens don't always
Keep promises made in spring,
But I keep hoping.
