Water Tower

It is, what is called a water tower.
It stands alone on a green field on the east slope of my mountain.
Now with brown-gold legs, higher up ferruginous sides.
No longer any cattle here, no reason for water service.
This well rusted watering can looks across to rolling coastal foothills.
A little green ball crowns the tower’s cap.

mountain water tank
man’s labor left to picnics
four leggy shade tree
