A Hope Garden

The Living Poetry prompt – lady, island, essential


The lady in cargo shorts started planting
In the wee hours under the island moonlight

When the sun was up
I knocked to introduce myself to my new neighbour
Over a pot of Turkish coffee
I came to know that she planted
Wild Iris, Obedient Plant, Marsh Marigolds and Rose Milkweed

I can’t wait to see her garden bloom
It will be a luxury on an island
only sustained with the essentials
Imagine the pretty little pink, purple and gold blossoms
swaying in the pacific breeze
