He once had planted the binding vows

and now sought passage through sweeping boughs.

    Good write.

    Would you like to come and sort my garden out? I intend to go to battle today with my pyrocantha!!

    Very good, but comes with a definite air of menace.
    You reaped what you sowed, big time.

      Wow! I have chills. What a beautiful picture and so kind of you to note me in your Author's comment. I am so jealous. I will try to do the same and take a picture of our garden, once we can get out there. Right now there is still some snow. Nice poem to accompany such a beautiful garden Michael. So, so green and lush!! Thanks!!!
