Oh dandelion, you lawn care pest
Your golden blooms will go no higher
Spring leaves have bowed and I earned my rest
Since you met my Weed & Feed applier

But revenge is sweet and your plan was sound
When you displaced my Kentucky bluegrasses.
In bare patches of lawn, new roots are found
Where Monsanto failed to kick the weeds ashes!

I Spy

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #144 – Wonder/Spy

Small wonder of verse
Was missed by others at first
Then spy rhymed coerce

And then for all our trouble
He penned another double

Snooze Repose

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #142 – Spring/Fresh

Words and Image ©2017 Clarence Holm

In spring garden gnomes
Rise above last winter’s frost
Fresh faced in the light

Dew stained face found as he was
Slumber struck snoozing repose
