April 7, 2020

(from the NaPoWriMo prompt: [write] a poem based on a news article.)[No.]

On the south side of my property

is a red flag

dangling from a long, tall pole that

marks my well.


We take from it and take from it

and in our turn give back and back

and back through the long

green glade on the north side

of our cottage.


There is a balance and flow—

what comes in must come out,

pressure drives the flow

in and the release

out.


I am not a well.
