"The Neighbor's Garden"

Sunflowers

Roses

Vines and shrubs

Summer sun

Tucking away

Behind the trees

Slight crisp breeze

I am in awe

Of your beautifully crafted garden

Strategically planted

Enthusiastically nurtured

Me eyes follow the fences

To where they meet

My sight widens

To all of our neighbors gardens

Transporting me to Europe

Italy to be exact

Sometimes for a second

Other moments linger

I familiarize my feelings

From when I visited Italy

Many years ago

Oh how I wish I could be there again

But i'm not

I am here

In New Jersey

Admiring your beautiful garden

And where our backyards touch

For today, that must be enough.

Thank you so much.
