Allotment haiku #1

An old allotment
awaiting transformation.
Next year, fruit and veg.

Men to the ready
Lurking in the greenhouse amidst grape vines

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

    1. I’m so excited about this allotment. My son and I are getting carried away in our minds about some of the exotic things we want to plant, but my husband is trying to keep us “earthed” initially, in the land of potatoes, carrots, and cabbages.


    1. I must write another allotment haiku soon, as the allotment is now cleared and dug over, and has yielded some amazing hidden gems (edible gems, of course, rather than anything for which it would be worth claiming mining rights) 😉
