Ivy's Secret

Ivy's Secret 

 

As she weaves and climbs

she shines

 

to the sun

she reaches

 

searching for company

she gathers speed

quicker than the tide

 

alone she waits

for the tide to turn

and take her

to her fellow mates

 

she reaches out for them

to hold onto

 

will they carry her

can they become part of her

 

not wanting to leave

can they retrieve her back

 

not wanting to fail 

can she carry on her trail
