'A Pulling Weed'


A pulling weed.
A dieing day.

A sun brightened.

A sun gone away.

A pulling weed.
A dieing day.

A yank, a pull, the weed is splayed.

    DYING, not dieing.........or are you using poetic license? ? ?

    and splayed doesn't seem to fit. do you disagree?

    Time to pull weeds,
    time to roll weed.
    A green smile,
    a day in the yard
