New Walls Can’t Make Good Neighbors


For this prompt, I’d like to reblog a poem written eight years ago, soon after I started my blog. I actually went back and edited the original, so it is a newer version of itself. HERE is the link

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Thank you for re-blogging this poem. What a nightmare those neighbors! I’m glad the plants have taken their rightful spot again and create the wall that you had before!

      It isn’t the wall it was before, actually, as it never reattached to the tree, but it does give privacy, except for when the leafcutter ants got to it and stripped it bare a year ago. They can be brutal. The new neighbors missed it as much as I did.
