Backyard Shed

 morning sun silently beating 
on the backyard shed
 glancing off houses beyond
rousing squirrels and foxes in the  
hazy mountains heading north

spring flowers faded into summer
grasses and weeds tangle along with
tomatoes and cucumbers

waiting for summer's heat to abate
and cool autumn breezes
again to flicker on
 goldenrod and sumac
and pumpkins
