Eat Your Greens for St. Paddy's Day

The Miss Rumphius Effect issued another Monday Poetry Stretch. Today it was all about flowers in spring. I didn't write about flowers exactly, but I did write about something we discovered this weekend while getting ready to plant our spring veggies.


Last year’s lettuce
seeded itself,
after July's growth spurt.

Seeds huddled together
under snow
popping up in time

for salad on St. Patrick’s Day.

Oh it feels so good to play in the dirt again, doesn't it? Love your new header, btw!
