GARDEN GRAZING

Poetry

My friend has taught me some finer things in life.
Things I did not know I was missing.

Garden grazing is one of those things
Sounds so very strange to my ears.

Without my friend I could not manage.
Helping me with so many things.

Hard aches and trials she does have.
Ones you would not want to claim.

She knows the word endurance.
And what life is all about.

She has taught me some finer things in life.
Things I did not know I was missing.

Garden Grazing

Garden Grazing

Garden grazing is one of those things.
Sounds so very strange to my ears.

A tomato, I may have eaten from the vine.
Even, blueberries,blackberries ,apples and figs.

But okra ! I was in shock.
Green beans,yes green beans.

And let us not leave out peas.
Just go ahead and shell them and eat.

Some finer things in life I’ve been taught.
Things I did not know I was missing.

Garden grazing is one of those things.
Sounds so very strange to my ears.
