Lawn Samauri

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

Lawn Samurai

Each tall stalk of grass

shivered slightly at his blade

Johnathan in Hakama

in early morning

when dew collected on sword

to manicure Montana.


A Samurai stood

in two hours cuts all weeds

looks out over neighborhood

specks of ant-hill town

hears plane in vertical blue

does not stumble on rock path.


Watch from telescope

mounted onto the porch roof

see when dolphins jump in pool

corner coffee shop

turns the Closed sign to Open

breakfast nooks fire up grill.


Hand too cold to play

upon beat-up acoustic

only song is the cold mist

drinking dark moon wine

in a thick coat seeing stars

a straw hat shaped like a Stetson.
