Blown Peony 2

Blown Peony 2

it looks like this
when the petals 
fall off.

each day brings
a new surprise.

this morning
i had to
shovel snow.

and shout hello
to my neighbor.
his new puppy
came to visit.

a puppy's
full off play.
fuzzy bundle
of bounces.
i made a friend.

new friends are
always so full
of promise;
you never know.
