Teaspoons in the Garden

One less teaspoon in the drawer
one more in the garden beds
one more beneath
my children’s favourite tree.

I know this for sure
they’re not anywhere near
my beloved teapot
& searching’s become a daily chore.

Notes on Creativity
This poem began as the start of a memory story about my early motherhood days. It ran out of puff and sat in my notebook gathering dust. But poetry gave it new life and here it is.

  1. I like it, June!! The first stanza is especially nice–I could easily visualize it, and I think it could stand alone (as well as being the opening of the longer poem)–just my nickel’s worth! Have an excellent day–God bless you!

  2. Thanks, yes it could stand alone, poetry is so economical sometimes you don’t need to say more. Thanks for your feedback.
