The Botanic Verses (1)

Woodbines

Wisteria

Winstons

Columbine

Camels

Poison Ivy

Unlucky Strikes

Shallow roots

Filtered drags

Suckers and tendrils

Smoke in ribbons

Clasping and climbing

Curling and coiling

Reaching and thickening

Writhing and threatening

Wrapping the trunk

Ripping the torso

Woody bones

Wrecked brachioles

Around

 Inside

Rotted branches

A rotten chest

Strangling

Strangled

Killing

  1. Okay so formatting is going to be an issue. Tabs clearly not the way to go.

    Posted on a PC, viewing on the app: how does it look to you?

  2. A wee tip – you can change how it looks on the home page (at the moment the excerpt chosen by wordpress is jumbled): go to edit, then in the menu at the side click on post format – more options – and then type an extract or a few words into the ‘excerpt’ box. It’ll then look neater to potential readers.

    1. Thanks. Simplified with simple indents. Lots of ways it could be arranged but this will do.

      Incidentally, called it Botanic Verses (1) so a) yous can all put yours up and b) because I quite fancy writing some more.
