The New Ninth

We’re still thinking about plants and planting

but we haven’t decided on what to plant.

The herbs do well.  I remember how wet green

the tomatoes and corn grew in New England.

Out here, we can’t get much to grow.

Growing tomatoes costs too much.


They’ve found a new star, and that star

has a different orbit.  It doesn’t cross

the other orbits much so we don’t know

a lot about this new planet.

This new planet is like Neptune but stranger.

This new planet might be the new Ninth.

  1. A simple, poignant and impressive piece of art.

  2. The first part reads well and could help build t he scene of the place you are writing about. It could also help with her character. The second about the planet not so much
