Lovingly entwined

The will to live

and find the sun

makes these vines

cling lovingly

that they strangle

as they climb

    I didn’t see the bottles – I am pretty sure anything chewed up and on the ground is just automatically ignored by my mind at this point. If my mind didn’t ignore it, I don’t think I could live with Choppy and her many destroyed toys!

    Have untangled many vines over the years. Mainly to help the plant they were trying to engulf. Like your poem. Did not notice the dog’s chewed up bottle, thought it was a piece of paper.

    I used to see this lily along Margaret River in Perth, Western Australia but never knew its botanical name other than Easter lily. Thanks to you sharing, I now know. 😀
