Melon – d’Verse

Awaiting compost,

getting a headstart

in my kitchen.


Seeds hunkering

down, waiting for

their head start.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

    Both you and the seeds are getting a head start.

    This reminded me of my mother, starting seedlings in her little home-made hot house, waiting for the right time of the moon to plant. Thanks for the memory, Nan!


  3. They get their head start from the compost… nature’s cycle, circle whatever 🙂


  4. I love the “head start”! Great write.


  5. Well a compost can be a great end for any fruit… soil is renewal.


  6. Patience suits gardeners and seeds alike.

    Oh I have visions of those little seeds “hunkering down”. For some reason, they appear to me in a cartoon fashion, but I love them. Always a pleasure when you join in with us, Nan.


  9. I like the idea of seeds hunkering down.

    How green is your valley–does it match your thumbs? A little abstract inquiry; smile

    Like the seeds, Nan, I suspect you have just begun. Nicely done.


  12. I love those seeds hunkering down. Fantastic image.


  13. I can just see the seeds in their nice warm compost bed. 🙂 — Suzanne
