Notes from a morning walk (Haiku style)

bombus alights on
morning glory, blossoming
above rotting trash

the vines extend their
tentacles upward, fighting
to pull down phone lines

the purple trumpets
sound a silent clarion
for reinforcements

the untamed backyard
grasses respond to the call,
overthrowing the fence

somewhere, a mower
rusts in the shadows while birds
and vermin rejoice.
