Pic and a Word #306: Garden?

A garden poem

I’ve just had a garden post
but gardens are always nice,
say I when I see Patrick’s new theme.

Let’s see. So many gardens
that I miss! It’s always wonderful 
to come back to the garden.

I know! I’ll search for various song lyrics
that mention a garden,
such as, you know, garden of stone,

and write a cento with them!
Later I have another look at Patrick’s post
on my comp. Before it was the phone.

It says “golden”.
That's the theme, not “garden”.
Ah, well. Stay that. Golden.

Have some gold in the photos at least.

And on Friday, do you know what is coming? That’s right, April, and with it poem-a-dayathlon called NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month). It will be my fourth April in which I write a poem every day.

What am I saying? After I wrote the previous sentence, I had a look: not the fourth, the fifth!! Where did one year disappear? (My Day One poem of last April is here.)

If you’re interested in participating, the daily prompt will be posted here by Maureen Thorson, the founder of this campaign. It is not even urgent that you write to the prompt but I like doing it. Clearly I need some restrictions in my life.

Some golden fields then, a sunset, some leaves, and as last this blog’s icon photo.

In response to Patrick Jennings’ Pic and a Word Challenge #306: Golden

This day in my blogging history

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

    1. I haven’t heard of this film so I googled it and I see there are two: the old documentary and the newer with Drew Barrymore. Which one did you see? Thanks, Bojana. These fields are around here, only one is from Ljubljana.

  1. Right after NaPo ended This rookie made a pledge: to do it again in 2022.
    At year’s end I said it again.
    So yeah, I will be attending again.
    God willing 😉
    Thanks for this amazing poem. Love it heartily. Blessings.


  2. I love your poem about mixing up Garden and Golden. Sometimes mistakes take us to the best places! And mistake or not, your images marry them perfectly, especially of the wheat field under fingers of clouds.


  3. Golden brown, texture like sun….GAWJUSS photos as ever, MM. NaPoWriMo sort of crept up on me this week. I only realised yesterday! I look forward to your poems 🙂 (There’s also Bassey’s Goldfinger…now you’ve go tme thinking of all the songs with golden in them!!)
