My Yard

my_yard2Overgrown bushes. Last

years leaves. Acorns

rooting in English

Ivy. Oaks loom over

the house. Drop

branches, limbs, put

holes in roof.

Maple, Dogwood, Red

Bud fill spaces.

Yellow crocuses, wild

blue, white star

flowers in the spring,

before the leaves turn

the yard dim. Scraggly Hydranga

lost in overgrown Holly.

Wisteria reaches out,

wanders in Hibiscus.
