Blogger Creative Challenge 264 – Hanging in the Balance

Marvelous! Thanks for sharing!

Chronicles of an Anglo Swiss

The First Cucumber 2013

A seed fought its way through dangers
Braved the onslaught of a snail tribe
Cared for by the attention of my gardening gift
Fed with fertiliser
Drenched with a daily serving of water
Exposed to showers and storms
Survival of the fittest
Exhausted from a battle for a healthy life
This cucumber was a successful cucumber
The happiest cucumber in the garden
He is not yet ready, still has some time to grow
What a proud cucumber he will become
I am so looking forward to a fresh cucumber salad
garnished with dill, growing in the same garden
Do not shed a tear for this cucumber
There will be many more – I hope
Yes the life of this cucumber is hanging in the balance
When it is served on my plate
