Wisteria


Spring brings change and introspection.

wisteria Wisteria

Grows tall, lovely

Captivating

Enticing

Fragrant

                              poison

Subtle violet                                                                                                                                                                   Subtle royalty                                                                                                                                         Not so subtle entitlement

For a season it       enhances                                                                                                              Adding light and life                                                                                                                            And beauty in the blandest of places

And yet that season changes and it                                                                               Grows

Symbiotic

Becomes              parasitic

Empty, graying                                 dying                                                                                      vines                          cling

Begging                  for                           acknowledgement                  nourishment

Once desired                    once beneficial

Inevitably detrimental              to                 both

Tainting the original

The foundational

is  weakened

And struggles to find its identity beneath the vine

Hoping for a salvific escape from something that has become irrevocably

Part

of

Herself.

The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.                                            ~Moliere
