gold hosta leaves

gold hosta leaves
cover the ash tree stump
the tree that fell
during a storm in 2018

Poem from October 24, 2019:


once the tree grew tall
before the Emerald Ash Borer
and then a storm

hosta plants
grew green again
around the stump
in Spring

they grew large
and flowered well
so blessed by rain
and a red begonia planter

now there is an
orange pumpkin
on the ash tree stump

and hosta leaves are gold
in the brilliant morning sun
