Garden gate.

December 13, 2010

The following is a series of short poems, some pseudo-philosophical, others just a bit of fun, inspired by the image, the idea of a ‘garden gate’. A couple of fine poet friends, @ChrisTwitery and @amoz1939, have graciously contributed a few of their own musings…

My garden gate
is well-oiled
but scrapes the stones.
__________

The garden gate
banged shut;
no wind.
__________

Even the garden gate
chatters
in the wind.
(@ChrisTwitery)
__________

Crickets on the gate
wait for someone to come in
whee! getting free swings.
(@amoz1939)
__________

In spring
my garden gate
is busy.
__________

The garden gate
is always closed
in winter.
__________

Two old crows sitting
on the rusty garden gate
swinging to and fro.
(@ChrisTwitery)
__________

Rusty garden gate
early in the morning light
crows drinking latte.
(@ChrisTwitery)
__________

Lulu arches her back
she purrs and rubs against
the old garden gate.
(@amoz1939)
__________

Tired white butterfly
rests on rusty iron fence
by the garden gate.
(@ChrisTwitery)
__________

Crickets having Earl grey
with a white butterfly chatting
on the garden gate.
(@amoz1939)
__________

The garden gate
lets in
and keeps in.
__________

The garden gate
unhinged
slammed shut.
__________

My garden gate has many latches
but you opened
all of them.
__________

Through the window
he looks at the old garden gate
for a while
and then wheels back
into the kitchen.
__________

The garden gate
swings gently
on its new hinges.

    Lovely! (I adore the poetry of @Amoz2939 & @ChrisTwitery as well as yours.) I especially liked ~

    “The garden gate
    unhinged
    slammed shut”

    she came unhinged
    slammed her heart shut
    and locked the gate
    alone again

  2. A charming and eclectic collection…”through the window” struck a chord.
