Poem: "A Linguistic Process"

This poem came out of the May 5, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Shirley Barrette. It also fills the "Scribeship" square in my 5-1-20 card for the Sumerian Me Bingo fest. This poem belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series. It is the third in the set, after "The Truest Writers" and "Those Who See Language" and before "A Living Element," "Based on the Mistake," and "The Professor's Keychain."

Birdfeeding

Today is a beautiful day, sunny and mild with fluffy white clouds in a blue sky.  Tomorrow it's supposed to rain again.

I fed the birds.  The finches kept getting on the thistle feeder while I was still out doing other things.

I put out the goddess statue and trimmed around the garden.  Some of last year's thyme came back.

EDIT 5/22/20 -- I planted wildflower seeds in the septic garden, then started trimming around it.

EDIT 5/22/20 -- I trimmed more around the septic garden.
