Twisted Love

(A haiku on antithetical munificence)

Expansive enfolds,
succour to the destitute,
interweaving trope.

Propitious dawn,
blistering blinding lustre,
encircling twilight.

Cogent impetus,
on convoluted journeys,
spiralling intent.

[This haiku takes off tangentially – quite unlike the profusion of tendrils that now erupt from my pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) plant; seeking, exploring, discovering and selecting various surfaces to twine around with the singular intent to support and anchor the fast vining plant. In the frame are some of the tendrils looping around the nylon fishing line that I put up to bolster its efforts.]

    1. Hi Theresa,
      It is a pleasant surprise to hear from you. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading my posts despite you not being with WordPress any longer. I am delighted that you have taken this excellent step to move on to a proper website. I have visited your site today and must say it is very well designed. I also went through some of the recipes and find them to be really interesting – not the usual run of the mill. I have subscribed to your newsletter and look forward to visiting your site more often.

      My best wishes are with you for your future endeavours. Do take care and stay safe.

      Warm Regards,
