Garden Catalog Field Walk

I am
deep into
a
field
of
seed catalogs,
fertilized
by
my fervid
imaginings
of
Spring.
Planting
instructions,
growing
tips,
idealized
descriptions,
new for this year,
Latin name,
how much row
you can sow,
and special
narratives
designed
to sell
each unique
seed.
I
am
sold.

Four Poems for the Field Walk

1.
I am the paper packet
in which you live
offseason, a crinkly bed
of possibilities

2.
So,
I sow each row –
three strong, in three
spaces, seeds — a possibility
of something to bloom

3.
Imagining
things, again
things I can't see
things I only wonder about
when snow covers all still to born

4.
This tree has a story to tell
its white leaves memory
its roots dug deep underground
its song a silent reminder
of the connected soil

@dogtrax A risky re-mix, ideas harmed in their reproduction.

Four Poems in One: A FieldWalk
1.
I am the seed.
You live in me
offseason, a banked fire
of directions, a happy script.
2.
Thus,
I sow each row –
three strong, in three
spaces, seeds — a fecund
something.
3.
Imagining
radical things,
roots I can't see,
hairs I muse upon,
when snow covers. Still. Unborn.
4.
This seed is a story,
roots sunk deep in memory,
a resurrection song
with the connected soil.
