Laurette: A Garden Query

This poem is a part of the poetic ‘scavenger hunt’ designed by @murisopsis from A Different Perspective. This time the theme is Names, as in poetic forms that feature a name (e.g. one of the prompts is to write a poem in the form of “Amandas Pinch” — a form I’ve personally never heard of before). There are thirteen prompts in total so this is more manageable then a daily commitment challenge. Check out all the prompts and the way it works here and join in if your up for some poetic puzzling. Enjoy!

Prompt 5

Write a Laurette poem or write a Lisa Rima poem.

A Different Perspective

The Laurette is composed of six lines with 4/4/6/4/4/6 syllables per line and rhymed abcdec. Full rules here.

A Garden Query

Are those green beans
Hanging in a
Pair so slender and long
On the garden
Wall where flowers
Bloom and the birds singsong?

Ohh, that was interesting. It’s always fun to be inspired by one’s beautiful surroundings. I’ll be keeping my eyes out on the fate of these “beans” as it’s strange that there are only this single pair among our flowering plants and vines.

Be well,



  1. I love pictures of green things, and your poem is delightful, with a wonderful lilt to it! I especially like your use of “singsong” in the last line.

    They look like a wishbone to me! Are they actually green beans or are they seed pods like the Catalpa tree or Chinese Wisteria produces??

  5. These definitely don’t look like beans to me. I’m curious to hear what you make of them as time goes on. Open them up before winter withers them. (Do you have winter there?)

      I’m definitely keeping my eye on them. Someone suggested they are flower pods which I’ve never seen before so perhaps. Yes, we have winter. It gets to freezing temperatures but rarely snows.
