Gardner's Delight -- A Poem for the Month of May

Add Roses Red
Roses Red, you have finally come
Pruned somewhat late that's all our fault
Inconvenience we're sorry
Sorry but not disappointed

Your blossoms so bright fair and Red
Welcome bait for any lass' hair
Bring my love a dozen plus two
She'll reward your valiant display

Summer's near, May's departing fast
Rose food desert early for you
And water each day keep you moist
Garden would seem bare with you gone
You pretty girls so dear to us
Proper kiss but for prickly stems

against the right wall, sisters are at

 [the left corner of the garden, the Louisiana Iris in
the middle here bloomed early, since we did not
have a freeze the orange Hibiscus left in the middle
picture have been blooming since February.]

Another Tuesday poem

From "The Chicken Dinner", 2016, 

Watch the Chickens
I'm standing here in the corner
looking across into the room
Why I'm standing here I don't know
There is no place I want to go

That dear was my plight this morning
Like a chicken just standing there
Three others in the room active
Chicken no place it wants to go

The others are doing their thing
Things to do with places to go
One to school another to work
The helper may end up like me

You could too when nothing to do
When you're through and no place to go

Little Bo Peep Looking for Her Sheep

The Dystopian Tarot, The Lovers
Kerry O'Connor 

Little Bo Peep looking,
her sheep hadn't come home

Forehead branded with
an "X" as were her sheep

Peering over the hill
hoping to see her sheep

Scary scene appeared
Eons of years in one frame 

Adam, Eve, mythology, fables,
space travel, no sheep

Where, Adam didn't know
Ogress** bellowed "I've devoured" 

"You are next"
