Pat's Poetry Place

Join Pat monthly for a bit of poetry at Pat's Poetry Place. A recent entry: Adobe Odes

In autumn, broody season,
      garden conversations turn philosophical,
leaves pontificating on life's brevity, the weight
      of maturity. Seed-heavy, your head bows.

"Ode to Sunflowers"

Adobe Odes, 2006
