To Do

A Twenty Minutes poem.

To Do

Methodical and efficient autumn checks off
the items
on its to-do list.
Send
a heavy all-day downpour and
Strip
the leaves from the trees and
Push
them into drifts and
Tangle
the grasses with frost and
Deliver
free of charge
to any person inclined to take an interest
a generous view of the open endless
sky

Imperious Tree small

“Imperious Tree” – fabric wall hanging, made around 1998 to 2000.

  1. Love this: “a generous view of the open endless/sky” also the rhythm of the short, action lines.
    And the wall hanging is AMAZING. 🙂
