The garden’s gaunt with February grey,
even the grass is dirty
this early morning Sunday
and the clouds above are murky,
drifting ragged ghosts
or a witchy hurly burly
racing towards the coast.
One sudden ray of sun
distracts them from their post;
light-fingered clouds gather as one,
purloin the golden coin and run.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Fussy Little Forms: Terza Rima also linked to Poets United Poetry Pantry
