Backyard Tale

by Andrea Laws

soybean field relaying
sunset’s horizon cold
fantasies being chosen
inspiring little and old

perfect world for resting
ancient snowing flurries
bitter memories nesting
releasing sorrowful worries

forever gate caging
earth’s permanence adieu
star sounds of future aging
pronouncing secrets hitherto
