Clematis 2021-1

a beautiful vine
in a wilderness
campsite,

i wonder how 
did it get there,

so far from 
domestic duty.


our name derives 
ftom ancient greece, 
and means "the climber", 
it is said.

this one may have
come from some
favorite garden bed.


other flowers
spring from nature,

far away from 
civilization's
awful fumes;

(some days 
it's really difficult 
to breathe easy.)


we carry the things
we love with us,
no thought for 
consequence.

domesticated
clematises belong
inside a fence.


bringing to mind,
a question:
where do we belong?
