Garden Talk

A Poem by Dave Brown
"

🍈🍏🍐🍑🍒🍓🍅🌽🥔🥦🍄

"

The Tomato said

To the nearest Potato in view

“Hey, I’m getting kina wet

How about you?”

 

Overheard by the grape vine

The Strawberries, Raspberries

Blackberries, the Apple tree

And the very damp broccoli

 

All agreeing that so far

Autumn was a disappointment

And that for much better weather

They’d best make an appointment

 

A vegetable crew was sent to

The great weather God in the sky

Asking if he just mightn't

Give some decent weather a try

 

Promises were offered

Arrangements were made

But so far this whole Autumn’s

Been a soaking charade

I don't know about you, but my autumn's been a pleasure.

Very funny and enjoyable read.

Well, at least they made a respectful request. Their garden is obviously not in Portland.

could that have something to do with a lack of weeding
I can hear the chatter around the Bird Sanctuary... a naked Rain Dance will soon thunder through...
the lightening Bugs sang under the Full Moon... and all the rain drops sang Claire de Lune without any Prelude... truly, Pat

I like your garden talk. Those poor tomatoes will need the sun to ripen them. So you are having a soggy autumn Dave? Now that is pretty miserable. Autumn is akwats best when it is warm, dry and very colourful.

The best part of your poem is the string of veggie emojis under the title. I'm sorry you've been getting jacked in the weather department, but I get the idea these veggies are simply rabble rousers. No matter if it's 120* or rainy or whatever, these cruciferous complainers would not be happy. I had to throw in a big word to hear you squawk (((HUGS)))
