Vine in the Attic


April is National Poetry Month! I wanted to share something I wrote recently. It’s definitely not great, but I am just excited to be writing poetry again- it’s a passion of mine that really helps my stress levels.


I am twisted like gnarled hands

Dusty, clenched in defiance.


Left behind in an old flower pot,

I have forgotten how to thrive.


I climb, slowly

Looking for the comfort of light.


While it is not quick work,

I steadily make my way to a more hopeful place.


Up the attic wall, leaves quaking

Through cobwebs and memories,


I make my way to the cold window pane

The light steely, harsh even, but rich in comfort.


I have found a new kingdom for myself

Dancing with the dust on this windowsill.
