A View to Review

deep red crepe myrtles
standing alert in the wind
their harmonies blend
as petals drift down like snow
on to the green plants that grow

red roses aglow
beside the walkway still grow
with one yellow rose
standing alone on its toes
beside rubber water hose

looking on the side
cedar trees stand tall with pride
small animals hide
dogwood and pecans abide
grass high need lawnmower to ride!

For Francine Roberts contest "the view - a tanka"
