We Write Poems Wordle-10


she leaves honeysuckle to weave
its tangles around forsythia branches
knowing the fragrance soothes her southern soul

with scented memories of a long-ago girl
who pulled wild honeysuckle blooms
and sucked their sweetness

    From a Northern clime, I know little to nothing about honeysuckle. Your words intrigue me and now I must find a way to explore what I do not really know. Thank you,

      Elizabeth, it is a wild vine that most now consider a weed and tear out of their yards. Its small bloom smells oh-so-sweet; and the fragance is strong which means it will fill a yard with its sweetness.

  7. Honeysuckle is a memory that never leaves one easily. I love how you tie the scent to memory in this poem.
