Garden Projects

by Lee Erickson




there are a million garden projects

conceived in the dead

of winter

 

big projects

glorious projects

glamorous projects

sprouting in the mind

like

daffodils on the edge

of spring

 

fences and new cement

walkways to weave

and meander through

the side yard

 

gorgeous gardens filled with

hyacinths and chrysanthemums

grass, green and thick,

damp and deep

 

new garages and screened in

porches and cobblestone patios

and new baby trees mingled

with wisdom of their

elders

 

grape vines overtaking fences

 

and vegetable gardens and

hammocks and warmth and

shade and sun

 

all that is clearly

visible

under the crusted

mantle of

inexorable

February snow.
