Ever-so Lightly

Deceivingly dainty

In bloom

She climbs

And loops 

Around the trellis

Towards the light

Interlacing vines

Holding firmly and ever-so lightly

Making her way

Weaving upwards

Around the trellis

Towards the light

Rampant growth

Throwing shadows on the wall

She looks back

Without fear or shame

And with wonder

Feels the warmth from the light

Showy delicate flowers

Wafting sweet scent

Willing to be redirected

She holds on firmly and ever-so lightly

Trusting, increasingly free

Toward the warmth of the light
