The Backyard

Yard full of straw
grass trying to regain itself.
Three dogs running,
playing, digging and playing.

A brown rusted fence
surrounds the backyard.
Boards used to separate
neighbors dog.

Dogs stirring up straw
Barking loudly.
Disturbing neighbors
Three bare trees
hoping to survive
the winter.

Yard cleaning duty
every few days.
Bag and booper scooper
in hand.

Life in the backyard
Filled
with special moments.

This is an interesting poem, I like it. I never would've thought to write about my backyard.
