Farmer’s wish list

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 12.42.00 PM

I am an engineer, a farmer, an apiarist, a photographer and an artist. The daily prompt challenge of ‘The poetry of list making’, made me think. A poem….Why not?

To leave behind a sustainable farm
Full with attainable charm
Zero tilling and no chemicals
Lots of compost and some animals

Flowers, fruits and vegetables
Year round full of eatables
Exotic plants and herbs
To decorate the curbs
A swing, hammock and grill
Will add to the frill

A vineyard and an orchard
Some wine with the dine
Apple, plum and cherry
Almond, peach and lots of berry

Fountains, birdhouses and birdbaths
Stonewalls and fireplaces
Showing the history it traces
With a place to meditate and
a tree house to hide.
Pond with fish and
lotus blooming at the side.

Bees humming and birds chirping
Ladybirds hiding while
Rabbits run.
Deer jumping as
Turtles nap.

Wish everyone were snapping
This beautiful picture in a frame
As I am up for the game
I am a dreamer
Yet a strong believer!
