    I was immediately transported back to rural Alabama, to the countryside surrounding Auburn University, where I studied. When I first moved there from Miami, I asked my classmates from the South about the strangleholding plant- they laughed and told me not to stand in one place too long, lest I be engulfed.

    Dear Debra,

    This is indeed a haiku moment in the truest sense. The minimalist approach allows the reader share the vines, reaching within to make your haiku the readers own too. Thank you for sharing it.
