Not ready to leave
you behind my fair month, June.
July's too busy.

When it should be rest,
why are weekends filled with chores?
Need a vacation.

Holding my breath,  I
survey the garden for plants.
Phew! The plants survive.

June 26, 2014

Choosing garden plants,
prickly, bitter, deer-proof things.
Hope we chose wisely.

The pile of dirt is
still there. No dirt gnomes moved it.
I hope they will soon.

Dreaming of hamsters,
must mean something. I draw blank.
I wake next to cat.

June 22, 2014

Something to stop wet
clothes, floors, burned hands, wasted time.
Dreams of dishwashers.

Saturday sleep in,
erase the trials of the week.
Weekend sleep in bliss.

When weeding becomes
a treat, you know you've hauled too
much soil for the day.

June 18, 2014

Every time I turn
around, there is something more,
endless garden tasks.

Tuesday, 17 June 2014

June 17, 2014

Giant pile of soil,
waiting to join the garden,
mountain not mole hill.

June 16, 2014

Willing to cuddle,
till I open the front door.
You're gone like a shot.

June 15, 2014

I think back fondly,
to all the times that we've shared.
How the years fly by.

So little time left,
till my sister's wedding day.
Oh, how time has flown.

June 11, 2014

Fog over Oak Bay,
drifting off Strait of Georgia,
hiding tweed curtain.

June 10, 2014

Indignant cat yowl,
left too long in ruinous rain.
Revive with catnap.

June 8, 2014

A plague on our house,
time will erase memories,
kneeling by toilet.

Sickness returns to
haunt husband, must be virus.
Either way, it's vile.

June 6, 2014

When my stomach churns,
sun still shines to light the day.
The cat bathes in warmth.

Miserable night,
food poisoning leaves me spent.
Searching for culprit.

Crows comb through long grass
in search of dumped stale crackers.
Seagulls don't share well.

Early morning drive
to airport, warm bread  bought from
baker's, back to bed.
