Latitude

Our eucalyptus tree
is now my distant
Australia -
Our olive tree
is now my recent Israel
and in-between -
in our English garden
of other imports -
our thirsty plants
look more suited
to wetter climates -
they limp without
the pull and whip
of overnight water -
English summers
play redefined dates . . .
