Tangled In The Vines
The man married a Fire Poppy.
He wanted an Orchid.
Two strong-willed people
growing in different directions.
Trying to change the other.
Trying to change water into wine.
Never recognizing they do not have
the power to change anything except
their own pot of soil.
In time, he grew into a Morning Glory,
while she planted Touch-Me-Nots.
