Tangled Vines

We planted pumpkin seeds
And placed the pot on the window sill

We watched as tiny shoots appeared
Enjoyed seeing them grow
And re-potted them outside

Leaves, vines and orange-yellow flowers

We wonder when we shall see pumpkins 
And look forward to the first fruit… 

…And then others

Growing together on tangled vines
They will develop and thrive
Despite slugs and snails and caterpillars

Just like us as we strive to survive 
Bound by an invisible cord that can never be cut


For Constance's Tangled Vines contest

    way to go with your poem on tangled vines. I don't even know enough about vines to know how to do this contest but I think I will research it just to get some ideas. How are you today? I hope I sent you a reply to your last email. Let me know if I didn't. Been so busy this weekend but now I have free time for Soup this morning. YAYYY

    A great write on this one Jack. I thought about entering but my thoughts kept going towards the inner tangles vines of our lives. Somehow it just wasn't coming together for me. Good luck in the contest. I am feeling good and thank you for thinking of me. love phyl
