Tangled Vines

An orange trumpet vine in its  beauty

Orange trumpet flowers bright intriguing

It grows reaches for the sun 'pon trellis' strong towers

So lovely and shady is its green vine drawing most humankind to climb

~~Climb until they reach its first level where other vines intwine

Vines intwined of such strength and beauty

One that is mixed in there is Passion Flower

Passion on this first level hasn't passed away

All vines honeysuckle, jasmine, poison ivy reach for the top

At the very top tangled vines wrap around healthy trees slowly choking
                                                                                            out the life


Strong vines cut into the outer bark getting tighter every year

Soon the inner being suffers crushing

                             By the strong vines which cut deeper, deeper and deeper each

years growing season

The trees who gave support are now overcome by a mass of flowery death

Tangled vines have overpowered 
 
                                      Their deceit and trickery has accomplished its death deeds

The tangled vines are at the top but the trellis of strength and support
 
                                                                   Is about to topple

    Sara, you are an amazing prolific writer. Who are your sponsors? Where do you get your inspiration? You may want to check out my poem on waterfalls. It may resonate the ones you have written on that topic. Allan

    This is a great poem. I just know it will win. I have a tree in my front yard that has beautiful flowers, but now that I have been sick it has grown some vines. I just hope they are not bad. Thanks for sharing.... Lucilla

    This is brilliant, such a tremendous write! I just love how you built up the poem as the vine got stronger and stronger every year! I truly enjoyed reading this spectacular piece, What a lovely poem, Great Work!! PS my family was in a car accident a few nights ago and I have been dealing with all of the injuries from that. It was a major accident, but luckily everyone is ok except for a few bumps and bruises and lacerations! I may not be able to comment as often I usually do during this time...
