Playing in the Dirt

Playing in the Dirt

I am playing in the dirt such a wonderful thing!

Just playing in the dirt there is no time for anything.

 From Ivies, Dracaenas, Bamboos, and Spiders,

Potting mixes, watering-cans and fertilizers,

 Clay pots, plastic pots, decorative pots galore,

Indoor planting is never a bore.

 Maybe it is the color green that attracts me so much.

Or, maybe it is that growing thing with a special touch.

 Then again, it could be a health thing too,

They say these are air-cleaners they are healthy for you.

 Just one thing that gives amiss,

My lil’ buddy earthworm, I do miss.

 But until summer, when we meet again,

I shall satisfy myself from within.

 Indoor planting is the game for now,

Calming the craving a little somehow.

 In the end, does it really matter why?

It is just another excuse to play in dirt. Oh my!
