Vines

There is a price to be paid
for entwining
for binding
for wrapping with tender tendrils.

There is a price to be paid
for advancing
climbing, winding, entwining
encircling the solid immovable structure.

Stems so yielding, adaptable
yet tough, seeking to find
a hold-fast.
There is a price to be paid

There is a blooming too
an opening, an unfolding.
There is a blossoming, a beauty
a dark glory
So a small price then, to be paid.
