THE OLD LAWNMOWER

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

The old lawnmower

sat in the yard beside the shed

for several years.

 

It’s an old push mower

that became obsolete

but for nostalgic romance

 

the rust

and the squeaky wheels

do little

to detract the allure

 

A whiff of petrol in the air

and all I do 

is sit on wooden steps

awaiting precise moments

and clear thoughts

 

The last rays of sunlight

& the fragrance of cut grass

merely highlight

its place in the landscape.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I must like mowing the lawn more than I care to admit.  Otherwise, I'm possibly reflecting an unhealthy obsession.
