Nattering Old Ladies

Nattering Old Ladies
Form: Free Verse

Sharp and vibrant green
bent over the path
like old women gathered to natter
on the corner
fronds fluttering in the breeze
teasing the air
as if washing on the line
frisking away from the curious black nose
picking up the scent of a fox
passing in the night
and long gone by sunrise
but Lily barks her warning
to the invader
her warning reminding the hidden life
this is her garden
her territory
