If you were an ivy vine

would you spread

across the foothills, and

wind your way

through sharp pitched mountains

curling ’round

the fallen log

where it bridges

the muddy slough?


And would you wend your way

around deep lakes and

through the tangled valleys

to the stand of trees

where you’d remember me?


Would you wrap

around my trunk and

spiral through my branches

as you followed every curve

to the top

where we both

could touch the sky?


And at noon

when you felt

the warm lips

of the sun

upon your leaves

would you sink your roots

into my bark?


I think you’d grow on me.
