T is for Trumpet Vine

Shamans of old used
your wondrous juice
as a balm to clear bad spirits
when minds were unclear

To open the way for visions –
renewal – grace and hope
you bring innocence back
to even the most distraught

A trumpet flower
springs forth from the winter void
heralding a time of rebirth
to an earth long asleep

  3. A lovely and evocative poem. I’ll never look at trumpet vines in quite the same way again.
