Reviving A Connection - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

The aging tree now has fewer limbs
Remaining branches thicken and strengthen
Beneath… green grass slowly withers from thirst…
Days shorten as drought continues to lengthen

Near the driveway a row of lilies form a border
Defining a property line with a lovely aroma
Not as vibrant as usual…leaves are beginning to yellow
Delicate petals swelter limply and are drifting into a coma

Many years have passed since they were transported
Setting roots into the ground and growing energetically
Separating ownership… not intrusively or rudely defiant
Like a cyclone fence…maintaining harmony aesthetically

My neighbor planted the hardy lilies with loving care
Now she is gone…and the lilies no longer get attention
It’s a shame to ignore a longing to display perpetual beauty
As water flows from my garden hose …I feel a connection
