Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
Love the long title & the brevity of the lines, culminating in the greeting, and that whimsical feeling of the image of “emerald tomatoes / Turned into rubies.”
Sunday I heard the parable of loaves and fishes. Today I read the miracle of you turning emerald tomatoes into rubies..
Yes, waiting for those tomatoes to turn red is the hardest part!
Great solstice poem!
If only I could keep the squirrels from taking bites from those emerald ones.
Oh! Those squirrels were the bane of my zenish country life.
You could have made squirrel fritters! Lol
lol good one, Linda!
Sometimes the miracles come slowly! Like poems.
Love that the veggies are GEMS!! Perfect (and especially since they’re your green-thumb treasures)
I love this! Quick and made me smile. 🙂
Tomatoes as gems! Good one! And love that the title is nearly as long as the poem!!
Plants turn water into treasures, Sylvia.
