The life of weeds

The life of weeds by Rob Hood©5-13-08

The lot was filled with weeds.

Grass didn't have the right nutrients

to meet it's needs.

But weeds have the knack

to exploit every crack.

They fill nearly every crevice

from Iceland to St. Kitts & Nevis.

They disperse themselves with seeds

blown by the wind

at various speeds.

They need very little space

because their roots

underneath unterlace.

They live their lives

wild and free

amid the mud and

the debris.
