Garden
 Cucumbers twining around and up over my garden fence
 Peppers shining like bright red Christmas ornaments
 Beans
 Bugs

    Summer has become a venerable foe

   the muggy morning is like a blanket

   hard to breathe

   my eyes become blurry

  Yet the cool creek water renews my waining strength.

COOL!!!!!  ;D ;D ;D  You guys rock!!!!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  Here's one...Zip code:  67456

I wished upon the evening star;
Each wish fell short, being too far...
A tear silently fell,
Dripping into the bottomless well
Deepening each day away from you.

WOW! There is some talent here. Very good ones.
Pro, try it. It can be free verse and not rhyme.

I agree ProElkCO.  I am not good at prose.

Ahem....
The fair is on right now.
I have a goat, pig , cow.
Perhaps I will win the First Prize.
Perhaps I not.
What wonderful event....OMG just WOW!

I'm at a disadvantage.  My zip has two 0's in it.

Ok, let's say it can be used as a one. Does that work for you?
