Garden Grinching

Ah, the weeds in my garden,
hen's bit, nutgrass, mallow, spurge,
Thistle, mustard, such an urge
To grow where you're not invited.

Goosefoot, you know I really hate you
I turn around and up you come,
doesn't take much of a green thumb
to find you hiding by my peas.

Bending over hurts my back,
as I grab a green rosette -
dandelion's not a pet
Go away and leave me be!

Writing journal: 5/24

Wrote original vignette:  Interruptions

Wrote poem:  Garden Grinching

Working on story idea # 2 and put #1 up a bit to percolate, since I seem stymied on it for the moment.  Got about 600 words into the introduction, with more plotted out.  Not yet sure if it's going to be a plotted short-story or something longer, but it's not going to be a vignette.

Thought of a new way to work on my selkie story intro that may help me move the story along.  I've got a lot of it plotted, but the doing of it is kicking me, since it's kind of a weird twist on the traditional story.

I would consider this a good writing day.
