This one is a bit dark.


As Green as Eveís Eden

She liked to water the garden
The cool of night was the perfect time
Believing she heard the plants thank her
Their feeling of relief almost sublime

Leaving the shiny green hose
Across the lawn and in the same place
She never bothered rolling it all up again
Snaking a line across her life in trace

One night she stepped outside
Into the cold of the late darkened night
When she felt a tug and her existence slip
Then she lost all her feeling and sight

She heard her plants all laughing
Muttering strange soft metered verse
Then her world turned green as Eveís Eden
And they all danced to a tillerís curse

Little ingrates! I shall send my dog to urinate on them.

This is so sad, and yes, dark. I loved the first part and her love for the plants but she should have rolled the hose back up.
It sounds like one of those German scary fairytales. But as always, well written.
