Squeak, snip.
Squeak, snip.
Squeak, snip.

Iím trimming the hanging
cucumber plants.
One of the three in my
Topsy-Turvy pepper planter
is deadening, the snippers
Are an older pair.

Swallow, bat, dragonfly,
an insect, a mammal, a bird.
The quiet pre-dusk sky
Speaks its own language.

Rustle, rustle, cheep.
Three cats look up, hopefully,
dry palm fronds shifting
into bed-time chambers.
Chirp, rustle, cheep.

Screen doors slam,
childrenís voices recede,
Called into houses.
Iím done with my trimming,
harder to see, anyway.
Iím older, and dying.

Metaphorically speaking, Erin, You're as young
as your magic pen allows. -gene.

I love the metaphor of life and death in this poem. And that it is set in reality of your trimming the plants.

Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
Sounds more like the everyday life and the trials and joys that go along with it, interesting...
