Yard Art

Sunshine spins a cotton bowl
As the drunken smell of legustrom
inebriates the breeze
And obese bees buzz a beefy red rose
To sip a pollen soda

Lazy dew sags like syrup
And saturates the lush lavender petals
of a petulant petunia
And garish gladiolas gaze adoringly
At the golden sun

Listless lawn lifts its frondly fur skyward
Ten billion blades erect, standing at attention
Wrapped in warmth, rapt in worship, one
Vast chorus of photosynthesis
Filling the yard
