Lenten Post #5

Pruned

Pruned

Cut back

Reduced

Standing here

In the ground

Immovable

Barren and ugly

With sap running down

No choice in the matter

The Gardner came by

Lopping off wild branches

And dead wood

Exposed and cold

And not happy about it

Now just waiting

Have to go about my business

Please pass the peas

Sorry about that sap

Wait for hope to return

With the first sign of spring
