Poem: "His Kitchen Garden"
This poem is spillover from the September 4, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] curiosity. It also fills the "thyme" square in my 9-5-18 Spices card for the 1000 Words or Less Bingo Fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] zianuray. It belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.  It follows "Creating a Community Around Food."


"His Kitchen Garden"
-- a triolet


For Shiv, his kitchen garden is a drawer.
He's running low on sage. He's out of thyme.
To make the soup he wants, he needs some more.
For Shiv, his kitchen garden is a drawer.
It's filled with herbs and dirt his hands explore.
He picks and cooks, when not engaged in crime.
For Shiv, his kitchen garden is a drawer.
He's running low on sage. He's out of thyme.

Notes:

Read about the triolet form.

Shiv's herb box contains (from left to right, top to bottom) rosemary, chervil, thyme, oregano, sage, and mint. It is upcycled from an old wooden drawer.
