Out In The Yard - Poem by Carolyn Brunelle

High temps too soon has
Exploded the size of our plants
Been out in the yard most of the day
Trying to overcome the enormous
Growth that has occurred.

Yard guys aren’t to blame, just
The way of things and mother nature.
Tiring day trimming back even more
Than could be accomplished in one
Initial pruning.

Now sitting here at the computer,
My fingers are sometimes moving
And sometimes not; as I drift in and
Out of power naps and wishing I could
Go to bed early tonight. The evening
Is still young, it’s just me that isn’t anymore.
