Once Upon a Time…

garden gnomes-
dressed in yellow slickers-
help hide the bumblebees from the rain
carrying hosta leaf umbrellas-
garden imps shake the raindrops –
from the foxglove blooms
fairies in rain gear-
tromp thru the garden –
rescuing the tiny sodden blossoms
rivers flooded –
bridges washed out-
where do the trolls go?

  1. Lovely garden you shared here in this poem.
    The strongest image after that is: “fairies in rain gear-”

    So sweet. Where do the trolls go anyway? Smiles.

  2. I love the hosta leaf umbrellas – how appropriate! As for the trolls, I can’t say I much care what happened to them. They’re grumpy and a drag to be around.
