I especially admired your reinforcing artwork selection and the sound effect of the "rattles" word choice, plus the specificity of "Honeysuckle". Best wishes in the 5-7-5-7-7 contest- Joan

A very well-written 5-7-5-7--7 poem and an interesting subject choice. The plants never stop growing when it is their time to grow, and they will grow even where another one lies dead.

This is a very good poem. It is easy to read. I think that you described part of the tree very well, or a plant of some kind. I think. I don't know. But, I like this poem! It's very good! Thanks for sharing this!

This is a very descriptive telling of a battle of landscaper vs vines. The word choice is excellent especially "interlocked," "relinquish," and "rattles saber. " They are battle words and yet fit the image of overgrown vines. Great work! Good luck in the contest.

Excellent and what a battle it is going to be, I think the poor old landscaper is going to have to do a lot more than just rattling his saber, a very well written short work, best wishes for your contest****kahpot

    Think your are right. I am now having to contend with them on a trellis out front as well as the chain link fence in the back..Birds must carry the seeds.

You have a vivid use of words that captures a clear scene of nature. I can see the vines intertwined as I read your poem. "Refuse to relinquish grip" is a great line that portrays the vines as live characters

Oh, have you been peeking into my yard? Seems like gardeners never catch up, sort of like reading and reviewing on FanStory. I enjoyed reading this fun poem with a bit of humor. Marilyn

    The birds carried the seed from the back to the front. Now I have them on my trellis. They are beautiful but only bloom a few weeks and then the fight begins. If I don't get to them before winter they are full of pods, like dandelions.

Your poetry and picture complement each other perfectly. I can almost feel the stranglehold of the beautiful honeysuckle. I can almost feel sorry for the fence to be conquered by the vines!
Awesome job!
