The Great Reversal

frosty trellis

 

Where once a green and virile vine

Twined its length upon your frame,

Frost has thrust his hoary head,

Icy claws have staked their claim.

*

Do not lose hope as Winter’s grip

Sinks fangs of doom into your heart;

Where once his frozen work remained,

Spring’s greenery will grow her art.

Raise the Roof

clematis trellis celing

 

Let no suspended ceiling

dictate your head-room, mandate

mobility, stunt your bloom.

.

If life’s limitations lay

down Murphy’s Law and suppress

evolution, raise the roof.
