Garrett Lu // THE BACKYARD HILL

The mountain in our backyard

was brought to life by the noisy yellow digger

from its smooth and serene hibernation.

 

A tsunami of dirt and trees arouse

threatening to swallow our dwelling.

 

I mount the coarse sides

and gaze down at the globe.

 

As the gusts come to visit,

the leaves rustle, the dirt and rocks tumble.

 

Reality is shielded from the realm

of our backyard hill.
