Dreaming of White Clover

Got a call from a friend from Galena
Want me to check on the house? he asks
He called back and said our propane tank was empty
and it is 5 degrees outside
and we are on a keep full much for that
Now, don't worry, it's taken care of
and we always shut the water off
but.....lordie.....this winter
has been one lesson
that I am still trying to figure out what I need to learn
from it
I that this too shall pass
and tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes
and tomorrow is always a gift
as is today
I have been looking out the window a lot
surveying the frozen tundra of a garden
and wishing and dreaming and lusting for color
making plans
Wanting to make a new garden this year
redo a few areas.....I know I say that every winter
But this time it is different...I am thinking
small and do-able
not grand and overwhelming
like sewing white Dutch clover in a barren area
between houses....oh! I hear you screaming
But I am wanting more bees and the smell of clover flowers
and the ability to make clover necklaces
while lying in it
 looking up
with sky mind
 yes....I think I shall invite clover in
and let the sorrel stay
along with the purple clover that bees
go gaga over
I am a wench after all.....I welcome all
Who am I to stand in judgment of anyone
Come all ye faithful
Yes this year it will be different
I shall do as I please in my garden
and it shall please me


  1. This has been some winter so far and this next week we are supposed to have more record breaking lows.


leave me a line of joy
