Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

volunteers

April 20, 2019

the lawnmowers roar in the neighborhood
racing the predicted rain
but ours is still quiet
in spite of tall stuff casting shadows
wild onions and volunteer plants
mixed with dead stuff
which will pass for a lawn
in a month

a general stay of execution granted
on behalf of the stately blue and white flowers
which beat the grass to the punch
a riot of color
celebration of spring
all across the yard
giving thanks for the sun
