Being Consumed...



Sitting in my garden this day, 
I wonder just how long I should stay.
The tendrils of vines are reaching my way.
Hoping to catch me in their clutches today.

The rain this summer has caused them to grow,
beyond anything I seemed to understand or know.
They are climbing the trees and porch posts,
to heaven they reach and climb and go..........

I wonder if I were not here and the tendrils had their way,
would they find themselves covering my house, the
windows and the doors? 
Would they climb the chimney and over the roof?
At this moment I fear I mustn't sit to stay.

The vines are taking over, I can almost hear them laughing, 
I can't be sure, I'd better get to pruning 
or they may soon be attacking!!!!!!!!!!!!
