A trip to backyard

Ancient secrets and old farmer's drains gurgle in the springtime, rose and salmon colors bud above winter's waste, small animals dare to dash from death that may hover above. A closer look, not recommended, reveals dog doo and cloven footprints.

Grandma’s Backyard

Has trees
Standing guard
Around three-way perimeter.
Their branches
With weapons of needles
They handle with great care.
Tall curvy grasses giggle
Hiding their secrets
During early spring.
Perhaps, it is
Another baby deer born.
Battles are raged
On rainy days
Ground submerges
Under water.
Lake or swamps
Rush into form
As they change
Landscape at their will.
Walk upon ground
To find a hole
Lurking in plain sight
As a hidden indentation.
Spring has brought
It’s hardships to the yard.
