Orange Trumpet Flower Vine with its orange trumpet shape flower Has wrapped its tenical around the pecan tree Now within four feet of the top of that fourty foot tree It took awhile for it to reach the top Probably five or six years of sending out shoots a little higher each year So like human relationships One being the stalwart one_supporter, nourisher The other vinelike clinging__taking Never thanking or giving back to the giver of life Just sending out those orange blooms to attract attention from pollinators Some people in relationships are the very same

Very good analogy of the vine to human relationships. There are few relationships in which mutual growth seems to occur. Well done, Sara. Love, Carolyn
