Raspberry Canes

Posted by Hello

been here for eight months
hardly know the neighbors yet
wave passing on road

one neighbor came by
brought us dahlia root, iris bulbs
and raspberry canes

one neighbor died alone
in his car, gun in his hands
a stranger forever

last night winds howled
carrying far the widow's cry
and raspberries bent low
