Garden of longing

Here in this garden of longing
I’ll not greetchee with lechery
For I know your beauty
Is not for me, no.  I’ll turn away
Thankful for that brief glimpse,
Return to hoe my row of woe

The prompt at NaPoWriMo is to Neologize, so greetchee is a mash-up of “greet you”
The prompt at dVerse Poets Pub is to write a postcard poem. Though I can’t imagine the garden of longing to be such an attraction to warrant postcards…

  1. Wonderful word play and I really like your neologism! I’m still working on mine – guess there are miles to go before I sleep – or at least poems left to write! Thanks for sharing!
