Orchards and chameleons

SlavaSpitzerMy mother’s aunt had an orange orchard and grapefruit

Groves, and a protective Great Dane named Bina to watch

Over all. Chameleons sat on stone walls around her property,

Pretending invisibility and mimicking the rocky fences.

When we visited, Bina and the chameleons, welcomed us

To the quiet farmland, perched neatly on a hillside,

Fragrant with orange and grapefruit trees
