Gardening?

The Seed

Upwards,
ever upwards
I climb towards the light
while my roots delve into the earth.
I seek nourishment to sustain my blooms
which must encounter sun's blessing
to complete the circle
of my journey
upwards.


Here I've used the Rictameter, nine line syllabic form (2/4/6/8/10/8/6/4/2), where each line increases by two syllables, and the first and last lines are the same. For the Mag 191, Tess chose a painting entitled 'Le Jardin' by Max Ernst.

  3. Interesting meter.
    If you placed the lines sideways on their widest end you’d have a pyramid.

  13. What a touch you have with words my dear! I like your take on the image too! I wanted to invite you to visit my poem again! You didn't like my Grandfather clock ticking on my site (it chimes too), you likened it to a bomb ticking? You haven't visited since and I hope it wasn't the bomb! Please forgive my silly sounds but most people love the ticking and chiming when they read. Have a great day!
