Neanderthal Woman and the No Electricity, Redux

This is Neanderthal Woman, a.k.a. me.

This is the tree

that came down this June

in the yard of N.W., a.k.a. me.

This is the tree

that came down this week

in the yard of N.W., a.k.a. me.

This is the weather

in our favorite State:

90, then freezing, then 90 again.

This is the sunflower

that grew in my yard,

now killed by the weather

in our favorite State.

This is a small

price that we pay

to live near the mountains

in our favorite State.

    I kept expecting the poem to be additive, like “This is the house that Jack built.”

    This is the weather,
    that brought down the spruce,
    that fell by the tree,
    that came down this June,
    in the yard of Neanderthal Woman,
    aka me.

    1. Oh, when I call myself N.W., that’s not a slam. Remember, I am a big Neanderthal advocate. 🙂

      Yes, they are very photogenic, aren’t they? I’ll leave the picture up for about a week and then take it down, per Bookstooge’s advice.
