In The Wrong Place

In The Wrong Place short poem

Photo by Annie Mole 

Sinuous roots stretch scrawny limbs,
Seeking security in a forbidding terrain.
Tentative fingers probing for purchase,
Momentarily anchor, creep and grasp again.
Mindless ambition, an instinctive will,
Drives a path to solar sustenance.
Revitalising rays multiply cells,
Promoting uninvited regeneration.
Wrenched head first from its bed,
A weed is just a flower in the wrong place.

The Place

The Place short poem

Square box hidden in plain sight, square with the head positioned just right; the place of silence. Lying flat, no movement, with a stiffness of sort, a rectangular figure, colorful, long and sturdy. Propped up with a stillness, an energy
