Cold Brewed

Temperate climate

soil is loose and ready

to cultivate

arugula radicchio

celery cabbage kale

chard favas beets

made it through

kept warm under snowfall

now start to grow

nibbled by rabbit and slugs

buds swell on the fig

red of rhubarb emerges

cold brewed


dVerse prompt to write a quadrille and use the nibble word.

  1. Love the way the title and ending frame the poem. So much hopefulness exudes from this quadrille as nature still thrives under the cold and snow. Not much of that where I am, but it seems my kale has a mind of it’s own.
