Expression Of Life

Slow growth, a common ivy
took its time climbing a trellis
throughout the summer.
Each branch, each leaf,
an expression of life. With heat
and light, gradual, incremental
growth. A natural path.
Come autumn, the ivy extends
its speech, a reminder of the
light and heat of a summer we
once enjoyed.
No final statement, not yet.
