ode to my new yard


the rustling of leaves as wind passes through

heard through the windows on nearly every side of the house

enjoyed while sitting on the wide front porch

fruit – yet green and firm – dripping from the branches

of the apple, pear and plum trees

raspberry beginnings appearing amidst the tangled brambles

the sandbox now uncovered awaits fresh sand

and the tiny hands of my little ones to dig and mound and smooth it

sidewalk chalk scribbles along the sidewalk 

where tricycles ride by
