Entwined Cinquains

WickedGlee to LadySavina:

Wide open
I feel you now
Again we are like vines
Mutually entwined in life
So good

LadySavina to WickedGlee:

And forever
I am yours, you are mine
Entwined we continue to grow
As one

We have started to work around our logistical roadblocks … we could be married before February.

The thought makes me smile so much my face hurts.

  1. I just read LS’s post.  I’m so glad you two have each other and that you can be together soon!  Love like yours should be celebrated every day, because it’s rare and oh so beautiful.

  2. Your poems reminded me of one of the songs my parents played on their record player when I was a child – it’s called ‘Misalliance’ and it’s by (the late) English comedians Michael Flanders and Donald Swann…The fragrant Honeysuckle spirals clockwise to the sun And many other creepers do the same. But some climb anti-clockwise; the Bindweed does, for one, Or Convolvulus, to give her proper name. Rooted on either side a door one of each species grew And raced towards the window-ledge above; Each corkscrewed to the lintel in the only way it knew, Where they stopped, touched tendrils, smiled, and fell in love. Said the right-handed Honeysuckle To the left-handed Bindweed: ‘Oh, let us get married If our parents don’t mind; we’d Be loving and inseparable, Inextricably entwined; we’d Live happily ever after,’ Said the Honeysuckle to the Bindweed. To the Honeysuckle’s parents it came as a shock. ‘The Bindweeds’, they cried, ‘are inferior stock, They’re uncultivated, of breeding bereft; We twine to the right-and they twine to the left!’ Said the anti-clockwise Bindweed To the clockwise Honeysuckle: ‘We’d better start saving, Many a mickle maks a muckle, Then run away for a honeymoon And hope that our luck’ll Take a turn for the better,’ Said the Bindweed to the Honeysuckle. A Bee who was passing remarked to them then: Tve said it before, and I’ll say it again; Consider your off-shoots, if off-shoots there be, They’ll never receive any blessing from me! ‘Poor little sucker, how will it learn When it is climbing, which way to turn? Right-left-what a disgrace! Or it may go straight up and fall flat on its face!’ Said the right-hand thread Honeysuckle To the left-hand thread Bindweed: ‘It seems that against us All fate has combined … Oh my darling, oh my darling Oh my darling Columbine, Thou art lost and gone for ever, We shall never intertwine.’ Together they found them the very next day. They had pulled up their roots and just shrivelled away, Deprived of that freedom for which we must fight- To veer to the left or to veer to the right!
