A poem about how I'm annoyed my patio garden doesn't get enough sun and how I can literally count the minutes by the shadows from my plants. A sort of faux sonnet in style, I find I naturally write a lot of block formatted 14 line poems, haha.

My Patio

A totem stands guard o’er photosynthesis en masse

A totem stands guard o’er photosynthesis en masse four sets of sunken eyes telling time by shadows cast

A totem stands guard o’er photosynthesis en masse four sets of sunken eyes telling time by shadows cast on the concrete ground light seeping through the cracks

A totem stands guard o’er photosynthesis en masse four sets of sunken eyes telling time by shadows cast on the concrete ground light seeping through the cracks between leaves so desperately craning upward towards a sun

that never shines long enough on plants doused in morning dew

that never shines long enough on plants doused in morning dew stems travel east to south acting as hour hands ticking

that never shines long enough on plants doused in morning dew stems travel east to south acting as hour hands ticking the daylight away, silently stalking the chariot rider, Ra.
