7 December: Box

topiary duck

gardener trimming topiary

Box

those scarred hands
suggest age beyond numbers,

oh, wondrous stories those
hands could tell,

if just someone asked,

but today
with long-blade sheers in hand,

he’s alone
with his thoughts and talent,

silently
clipping, snipping away strays,

sculpting
ancient box hedges

into surprising shapes.
