How we live our lives

We live our lives with unintended circumstance;
Like change, growth happens on our margins.
Tendrils, intertwined, strengthen both and all of us in turn,
And further, growing deepening stretched against each other,
Twisting out along the framework that sustains us;
Inherently dependent upon the lives of others,
Half glimpsed behind the shadows of the leaves, that
Fundamental necessary support. Clematis and vine:
Sight and scent together – heady beauty for tonight –
And fleshy lustrous purpling grapes, promises of wine.
