Leaning on the Rake
by Richard L. Provencher  
4/10/2011 / Poetry

Autumn leaves are curled-up
edges wrapped in calico colours
waiting for the rasp of tines
as they scrape
across lawn's waning shade of green.

Footfalls from children
tamp down remaining strains of grass
laughing and wrestling in the last
of summer innocence

adults barbecuing burgers
with friends
inclined to visit
gossiping in every direction.

He muses during a restful watch
breath coming in spasms
of sweat shifting one foot to another
dear one to soon call lunch

one more sweep should complete
morning's task
and he does with a burst
of finality.

Richard L. Provencher

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
