my spade slides deep into the garden earth:
asleep through winter's freeze the seed bed
awakens at my touch. earthworms scramble
in the humus-rich soil while rich aromas rise
from the new turned awakening garden

what spade shall stir the garden of my soul?
what hidden life stirs beneath its frozen surface?
what rich scents, signs of growth and health,
await awakening to be released?

I have this minor problem with working in the garden, I have a black thumb, anything I plant, ultimately dies, probably why I never had any kids...philosophy and gardening seem to go hand in hand, and you got both hands in...Peace, Ed & Rufuz

The best part is experiencing what is released. Short and tight, I like that.

Hmmm, what indeed?! This has all the quality of the mystery of life about it, John, and who knows what catalysts will emerge to change the form and landscape of all our lives in this coming year? This is so full of rich hope and of the excitement of the discovery of fresh and as yet untapped potential which may await deep within. Inspiring! Thankyou Kate

John.. as I, too, take spade in hand and begin my annual love affair with the earth, I will bring this beautiful, thoughtful poem to the front of my mind and it will make this my very best and very favorite year in the garden... I cannot summon the words I truly feel about this.. I'm keeping it in my library.. I will post it in my garden, as I post my packets, reminding me where to find what I'm looking for. This touched me deeply, my friend. katy xox.

considering the time of year, poems on this subject seem to be sprouting in the den...I have one myself.
This I liked and could relate to. I am an ole farm boy and before my Vietnam days, had a horticultural business...I have always loved working the soil.
Very well done, John

My gardener friend would like this. It is quite pungent and perceptive.

John, another outstanding write; you are a philosopher gardener!
