ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem is spillover from the February 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from Anonymous on Dreamwidth. It also fills the "talk with a friend" square in my 2-1-17 Platonic card for the Valentines Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Officer Pink thread of the Polychrome Heroics series. Note that these events take place shortly after Turq and Ansel meet, concerning one of Turq's cohort.

Warning: This poem contains some intense stuff. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features homelessness, disconnection, feelings of loss and despair, depression due to mad science torture, shame, references to computer hacking, poverty, sleep disturbances, difficulty asking for help, and other challenges. Nebuly is a mess, because everyone who survived Carl Bernhardt's attention is a mess, but he's doing a little better now. This poem captures a turning point when friends become family of choice. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

Today I planted two goji berry bushes in the savanna hedgerow along the road.  Then I put the water jug greenhouses over them, and mulched around them.

While working in the mulch pile, I unearthed a toad, and carefully re-covered him.  <3 my detritus food chain!  Worms everywhere while digging, too.

Honeysuckles, crabapples, and privets are beginning to leaf out.  Some daffodils have buds now.  The first of the forsythias by the garage are blooming a few sprigs.  Snowbells are blooming in the white garden.  :D
