NaPoWriMo – Day 5

NaPoWriMo – Day 5

The day five prompt was to write a poem inspired by and/or featuring the lovely poetic names of heirloom seeds.  Thanks to the lovely website Southern Exposure Seed Exchange I found a lot of beautiful names.  I managed to find within these names a story, and wrote my poem in the form of a conversation, every other line being one of these names.  Here it is.


So what did she leave you then?
Aunt Lou’s underground railroad
Remember sitting in her garden?
Green tint summer squash
Then it’d start to rain
Big rainbow
How is Uncle Albert?
Love lies bleeding
You think he’ll be OK?
Hard winter, turkey red
