June 2013 Poem-A-Day Challenge – Poem #4 (Backyard Trilogy)
My Dog Puppy in the sun, I can’t tell if you’re having fun. You sniff the air, you sniff the grass Your tongue hangs out, you pant Please don’t eat any more plants. The Worms There are disgusting worms hanging from nearly invisible gossamer threads Is it wrong for me to wish them all dead? My Apricot Tree My apricot tree is dying At least, I’m pretty sure she is She’s only made six apricots in the last year.
