nosy neighbors


Vulture

Amber shoots;
all left over
from a rising tide
of dry summer.

Thus my shrubs
remain as
a green wall
against the brown trespass
of heat.

Lady
across the street
eyes my dying garden
above her hornrims.
She stays home all day,
watering.

This is a fine poem. I like your imagination, your imagery is strong and the last stanza is brill.

I love the metaphor "vulture." A very creative and briliant metaphor indeed. Loved it.
