TANKA (Ipomoea Pandurata)

First year you appeared
Blooming along clinging vines
Deceptive beauty
Disguising your aggression
Strangling the kindness of trees

  1. Enjoyed the poem, Clarissa, but I’m afraid I have no sympathy for this type of vine, no matter how beautiful. At my place I eventually defeated the bougainvillea after many bloody skirmishes, but the wisteria has defeated me. I remember one particularly wet spring when I found it had leapt across to the house, then climbed the drainpipe and the television antenna. I think it did it out of spite. 🙂

    1. LOL! They sure are spiteful, Steve! But I’m just a wild child and love the flowers. With me, it was Morning Glories…everywhere! And after 20 years they are still climbing the gate at my son’s house (that was once mine). He actually growls at me about them and I just smile 😀 Ok, I laugh!
