Call Me Mud Pie Mom

Just place me in a flowerbed
with birds a-circling overhead;
please add some sunshine and some rain
to make this landscape my domain.
Pink columbine and peony,
some hostas growing 'round a tree
can mingle with the marigolds
acknowledging petunias bold.
Bright rainbow colors, my delight,
parade from dawn 'til dark of night.
Do I need add another clue?
I’m passionate about this view!
But, best of all, when I survey,
it seems the work is only play.
These muddy knees and dirty hands…
oh, yes, they’ve answered my demands
because I’ve gained true happiness
becoming such a dirty mess!

  he he I know that feeling! I just loved this colorful piece and you really bring your joy through! When I was planting some foxgloves the other day I just loved getting my fingers and hands all muddy and really connecting with the plant and the ground. What blessings!

Happy day with lots of love,peace,joy,abundance & smiles to share

  Wow, Ron's right, it does "sing with merriment". It was incredibly descriptive, without lacking emotion. It seems like nobody ever writes about nature, and it's such an incredible thing.

Very Good Write.

  Ha! This is wonderful! It literally sings with merriment and the joy of working in mother earth, the out of doors; in, as was written in one of my poems "Gods Good Earth"!!!!

And, there is no more satisfaction than to get to enjoy the wonderful colors that you have planted for all summer long! Those who haven't ever tried gardening and growing their own flowers don't know the joys they're missing!

Another terriffic write, lovely lady!!!!!
