Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Wisteria

Wisteria by Maureen Sparling

Wisteria by Maureen Sparling

A wisteria runner reaches
reaches
seeking a grasp hold to climb.
The early sun glints
in the dewdrops it carries
reflecting
blue
green
white
sparkling and dimming
as the runner seems to tremble
straining
unsuccessfully
for the porch rail.
I blow a stream of smoke
through a coil
to see it mirrored in the dew
and watch it waver at my breath
using it to swing closer
just a little closer
following the fulcrum
a chartreuse runner of hope.
