Kerry has presented us with a botanical word list to inspire poetry today.  You can find the entire list of words and the link to more poems at Real Toads.

dead tree

twisted soul creeps close

chasing a zigzag pattern

across my indigo heart

ivy thorns cling to

wilted willow sapling

dripping snowberry tears

onto meadow grass

shallow life energy

clings to crystal body

begging leave of elders

seeking screens to

shun the primal pain

clustered behind veils

in darkest dreams
