A loop poem on garden hose loops
"Garden Hose Loops" by BeasPeas

Pesky garden hose, loops and tangles.
Tangles, knots, arranges to conspire.
Conspire and trip, it grabs my ankles.
Ankles weaken as sun grows higher.

Higher then lower, back breaks the earth.
Earth soft and fresh clings, dirties my knees.
Knees complain, grow stiff and weak, they creak.
Creak with each move; I'm glad for a breeze.

Breeze refreshes until work is through.
Through for today, I sit in the shade.
Shade soothes, surrounds the deck where I rest.
Rest, sipping a glass of lemonade.

Lemonade gone, planning tomorrow.
Tomorrow I'll plant heirloom roses.
Roses require sunshine and water.
Water supplied by pesky hoses.

Author Notes
Syllables: 9
Nothing is as frustrating as a looped garden hose. The crinkly new hoses don't kink, BUT every one I have bought breaks at the coupling, where the brass fitting meets the crinkle hose. Thank you for reading my poetry.
