Fertilizer

You are ivy, wandering;

Tradescantia pallida
taking over our garden,

a shadowing silhouette
towering over humble petals
your stems, spread,

in envy green

ambiguously waving
in (not so subtle) wind.

Oh, the flowers
that lie beneath,
are not crushed,
but flourish;

your shade
letting light in
from the inside;

roots deep in fertile soul.
