a walk under the pool slide

a walk under the pool slide poem by steven james humphreys

I walk under my pool slide

watching dragonflies

glide scooping up water.

the squirrels eat corn

cob I cut and birds

feed from feeders

I filled with fresh

seed.

I am mindful of

how hard I worked

for all this

‘stuff’

through many

decades of toil,

knowing it was

well worth

the effort

because of the love

I feel for all my

backyard

friends.
