she pats the soil
Oh, so tenderly.
knowing there’s magic
in there somewhere
but, not quite what it
will be.

She whispers loving thoughts
sings her hopes and dreams
gives them to the leaves
adds a silent wish
may she watch them grow
as she will
and that one day
they’ll be trees

  1. Beautiful, and lovely poetic structure as well. Thanks for sharing your take on this photo. I am always so amazed at how different each entry is, yet have so many similarities (even considering we use the same prompt photo!).

  2. I Love Agricultural 55’s!!
    This was very sweet.
    Thank You so much for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  3. Enchanting poem where childhood is awakened by the possibilities of dreams & wishes becoming reality, simply lovely.
