the climb
over barbed wire…
trumpet vine

    I love the contrast between the sharp barbed wire and the image of a flower. I also love the sense of escape that the images in this poem evoke. Nice!

    Trumpet vines inspire me also. From last summer:

    taller than
    the tallest gravestones
    trumpet vines
