Several years ago--I wrote 2 poems to/about my garden. Yes! I do that!!!
The second one, in my opinion, is a masterpiece--to this day--i do nor believe I wrote it.

It is called: "The Garden Wakes" . It is beautiful. It is timely. I would like to share it.

Where could I post it for everyone to see? Would it fit under "Articles"? Where"

Thanks for helping me out. Gita

Thanks, all.
I did look it up in the "Sandbox". There are only 2 entries from 2015.

Does't look like it is a very active Forum.
Don't think I will go there..... Gita

@gitagal .... Oh, I think that would be wonderful for the "Articles"! Maybe you could send a copy to Trish and see what she thinks. http://garden.org/users/profile/Trish/

I agree with Lin! I think that would be a lovely article, and so many more members would see it that way! Thumbs up

Gita could do both -- or if she is a prolific poet -- could start another thread in addition.😊

Rosie---
I need to appologize--as I went back to the "Poems" Thread and saw your amazing poetry.
I have NO idea what i was looking at when i said that there were only 2 posts?? *Blush*

Seeing my old friend, Sharon on this thread is inspiring. Glad she is still posting. We go ways back! Lovey dubby

I will go back to it and post my "Garden wakes" poem in the next couple days.
I am NOT prolific by any means. I have written 2 poems re my garden. That is it.
Oh, I have written others--but they were to/about other people. Sort of "personal'...

There is an old Thread called "Poetry on the Pile". It was started in 2006 and went on to Part #2
and then part #3.
It kept dying out and now it has been a few years since anyone posted on it.
Occasionally, I have dredged it out of "the mothballs" and gotten some people to contribute "ditties".
Mostly on the Mid Atlantic Forum on DG.
If you can find it--read it. There is some serious poetry in there--as well as a lot of on-the-spot,
lighthearted , contributions. I added slews of those over the years.
All I need is the first line--and i am off.....there are lots and lots of these "On the Pile".
It IS slowly "composting"....need to add some fresh "fodder" to bring it back to life....
Get your "shovels" out!

Don't know how to search for it-- ....
I bet someone here will know how to find this Thread in a flash. Thanks, Gita

I would like to see that thread Gita.
I will look..DG is not in a healthy state for finding things. I joined in 09 or 10 ..I sure hope someone besides me looks for it. Maybe you could check with others on mid atlantic forum. Living here in NC... I was an occasional visitor.
