Connections: September 25.17

It’s leggy and seed-headed

brown where once was green

but the garden this September

is the best I’ve ever seen.

My pear tomato plant

bedecked like Christmas tree

has survived in gold and gaudy

ponderosity.

Connections: September 7.17

What delicacies, what midnight snacks

are snugly hid away

to be brought outĀ like popcorn

some barren winter day?

 

What culinary splendor

brined since last July

will extol in mid-December

the art of putting-by?

 

I recall ourĀ cellar of yore

almost as dark and dank

and I think I don’t want to know more

of what’s in their food bank.

I’ve never grown pear tomatoes

but I hope I will do it again

there’s something jolly about them

though I’m not sure I quite comprehend.

Is it the belfry they bring to the garden

their curly jester hat

or is it they look like shmoos

or first cousin to squatty kumquat?

Or maybe the candle flame

they glowingly bring to mind?

Or happily all the above

conglomerately citrined.
