The backyards meet
and are divided by
a fence, a wire wall
with many openings.

The neighbors
planted tiger lilies
that crossed this border
and took up residence
on my property.

I welcomed them.
Their beauty was
reason enough, but
they also brought back
memories of
my aunt and uncle;
my first home, and
the orange blossoms
that lined the driveway.

I wonder if  
different owners
thought the plants
moved from my yard
into theirs. If so,
did they complain
that these lilies
didn't belong there?
I hope not.
Why should it matter
where the flowers came from
when all they did was
enhance the landscape?
