I didn’t kill the bougainvillea

Amy Lynn Reifsnyder

January 7, 2020

 

Hectic season

of chaos and Christmas

Uncertain future

in turbulent times

Cold icy mornings

bring rain in the evening

Snow only falls

Out of reach

Out of time

 

Despite all this mayhem

Converging with sorrow

Leaves turning brown

Falling down

The parsley strives upward

Defying the muses

And I didn’t kill

the bougainvillea

~ this time.
