Give Peas a Chance

Two years later–It’s still not too late, to give peas a chance.

##########################

Growing fresh

And green

In backyard gardens

Forget about those

Mushy, dull green

Boiled to oblivion

Peas of the past

It’s not too late

To give peas a chance

Try delicious

Stir-fried

Asian cuisine

Snow peas

With edible pods

Black-eyed peas

Delights from the South

Or, split-pea

Soup with ham

All I am saying

Is give peas a chance

 

GIVE PEAS A CHANCE

Growing fresh
And green
In backyard gardens
Forget about those
Mushy, dull green
Boiled to oblivion
Peas of the past
It’s not too late
To give peas a chance

Try delicious
Stir-fried
Asian cuisine
Snow peas
With edible pods
Or, split-pea
Soup with ham
All I am saying
Is give peas a chance

SOUTHERN COMFORTS

live oak southern mansion
Spreading, live oak
Welcomed with
Wide-open arms
Yes sirs, thank
You ma’ams
Wrap-around porches
With arched columns
Gingerbread trim
Invited guests in
Privet hedges
Neatly trimmed
Azaleas, camellias
Ancient magnolias
Two cherubs, giggled
In the garden
Walked, winding
Pathways, near
Trickling fountains
