Grapevine Wreath

Oh grapevine,
      twisted and bent
Woven into a circle –
      sort of,
Reaching up
      over and above
Past the boundaries
      with love.

 
A few tendrils
      scattered about
Circled around
      in a spiral,
Just like us
      reaching out
For something
      to hold viral.

 
Adorned with feathers
      fluffy and soft
Lost by a bird
      somewhere.
Beautiful colors
      delicate design
Painted by God
      with care.

 
Pieces of wood
      weathered and worn
Tossed around
      by the lake
Grayed and smooth
      float from afar
How long
      did it take?

 
Buckeyes rounded
      Shed from their shell
No longer spinney
      but smooth
Touch the dark seed
      hold in your hand
Good for the soul
      to soothe.

Acorns small
      Seeds with hats
Randomly dropped
      from a tree
Will not all sprout
      they lay on the ground
Waiting for someone
       like me.

The final touch,
      white and pearly,
Tossed by the water
      a broken shell.
Where it came from,
      where it’s been,
I don’t know,
      I cannot tell.
