From My Prompts

Today is warm, muggy, and cloudy.  It rained last night.  The yard is soggy.

Round 1, I planted two blue-eyed grass, one in the wildflower garden and one in the prairie garden.  It's not actually a grass, but rather a wildflower that looks like grass.

Blackberries are blooming.

EDIT 5/20/17: Round 2, I planted two little bluestem grass in the prairie garden.  This is real prairie grass.

EDIT 5/20/17: Round 3, I planted two side-oats gramma in the prairie garden.

EDIT 5/20/17: Round 4, I planted two Indian grass and one unlabeled grass in the prairie garden.  This concludes the planting of things bought in the native plant sale.

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem is spillover from the April 4, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] technoshaman. It also fills the "Blue Jeans" square in my 4-1-17 card for the Month of Rainbows fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some intense topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. Shiv is trying, but the inside of his head is still a mess. The poem features incarceration, mixed feelings, fumbling efforts at coping skills, poverty, discussion of (beneficial) weight gain, sensory overload, choice paralysis, flashbacks to child abuse and neglect, struggling to choose clothes, trust issues, fear of the future, and other angst. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
