Aging Divas

Redbud trees are hung with the

blackened seed pods that never

did right this year in the crazy

spring heat that crisped them up.

Now here they hang ugly as sin

refusing to just let go.

Like old divas hanging on

well past their prime

beyond their usefulness

refusing to budge though

their point has become moot.
