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


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



grape vines overtaking fences


and vegetable gardens and

hammocks and warmth and

shade and sun


all that is clearly


under the crusted

mantle of


February snow.
