Grace and Peace to you.
In the center of the garden grows an apple tree
simple and beautiful,
with heavily scented blossoms in the spring
and fruit each autumn.
In that garden is also a vine, thick and verdant,
that always starts small.
If you let it, the vine will grow enormous
and choke the apple tree.
increasingly foggy at lower elevations
of the subconscious,
though habits of self-reflection
will clear the air
