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.
