Gardening by Osmosis

My garden quilt blankets its bed. Seeds that were sown have become the fabric of the garden.

Patches of pumpkins, rows of ripe beets, corners of carrots; their feather tops waving.

Layers of leaves where zucchini can hide. Fine silk on corn stalks. Patterns of sunshine and shadows throughout.

Red accents of strawberries stitched in their ditches. Embossed are designs of tendrils and vines of peas, beans and cucumbers.

Borders of berries, raspberry and blue, are hemmed with savory herbs, Rosemary and thyme. Under the cover, potatoes wake up and garlic sleeps on.

The garden will soon be at rest....
