Florida Love Vine

Maya Ellenson is keen on creating unconventional poetry and prose, inspired by what the moment reveals.

Love Vine of South Florida or Cassytha Fliformis

Gomez Preserve Nature Trail, Hobe  Sound, Florida

Love-Vine Alchemy

Love-vine entangled

with live oaks

in Florida hammocks


some call Witch’s Hair-

perhaps from the times of

Auto-Da-Fé –


trapped in all-consuming

demonizing concepts

devouring the Earth


more than so called vampire plants


this love-vine transmutes

the sap ingested from the shrub it twines

into a healing substance


the witch’s hair


auburn like embers

tinged with golden tones

of somewhat dwindling autumn palette

The change of seasons are conjuring with the transition from pre-Covid to post-Covid era. Interesting poetry, as always.
