Outside My Door
The driveway’s wet sloping back ends
at a green-fringed white-crystalled skirt
that traps tantalizing fragrance within
its folds. Trauma-stilled, crunchy steps
imprint on a swollen body that one day
will melt away to nothing but mud.

The Writing Challenge: Write a poem utilizing either Personification (giving human characteristics to objects, animals, or ideas) or Imagery (appealing to the senses). If you want to combined these poetic devices in one poem, its also okay.
