    The wildness of nature is what makes it so beautiful and compelling. Who wants ChemLawn? NOT ME!

    Love the ‘picture perfect’ photo!

    I absolutely love this. You are brilliant. I am looking forward to reading a lot more. Thank you.


  6. Love the photo; but I must say, I never had any help that looked like that cutting my grass. You described most of what grows freely in my yard…:)

      I guess some people receive all the luck. Maybe the two in the image run a lawn management service. You know, the companies that drive around in pickup trucks with a trailer full of lawnmowers.


      • Yeah, been there, done that but all my help needed showers and shaves before they showed up for work. You can imagine what a day in the sun was like…:)


      • I think things must be different in your area then. Our local lawn cutting service always supplies a pretty girl to assist with the mowing as shown above. My wife doesn’t like it, though, so now I have to do it all by myself! I must say, though, it’s easier that now, the girl just kept getting in the way.

        I enjoyed the poem, Feels a bit rebellious, like “I just want to be me. Leave me alone or I’ll do something neither of us want.” I’m not sure I’d want to cuddle with the thistles.

    Oddly reminds me of how the world’s best women soccer players were forced to play on artificial turf last year, another way of “edging” them in compared to their male compatriots.

    Yeah, I tried suggesting this to the wife, but she wasn’t keen. Said something about how I should put in a rose garden instead. Hmm.


  13. What a great piece of writing. It must have been such a joy to finish and see your garden in bloom๐Ÿ’œ. Happy spring time!


  14. The analogies in this poem are terrific. Nice writing.

    Wonderfully played out metaphor!

    Title and picture perfect accompaniments to your poem. I love all the “wild” weed flowers. Delightful ending – messing up the flowerbed. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Mama Bug says:

    Love it, it is a perfect fit! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love UN-perfect. If I had a garden, it would be EXACTLY this poem. Wild and willful and beautiful with places to hide for the kids and benches over grown with morning glories to rest on. Simply: YES. Wonderful and refreshing ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like how you look at things, and everyday objects and the personification of them at times. I am enjoying your writing so far.
