Sun Stroke

Sun Stroke
By John R. Greenwood

a magic stretch of fence lays a morning gift 

sprawled across my backyard floor

spreading simple lines that volunteer

 to pull away negative thoughts of any kind  

and swallow them whole

leaving behind a freshness atop the dirt 

where anxious sprouts poke their tender heads 

curiously to the surface to see what's going on
