Poetry Corner: The Ivy

The ivy in my sun room
survived the Winter

It sat out in the cold
It didn’t get much sun
I forgot to water it

But come spring
Waxy, light green leaves sprouted anyway

Ivy is forgiving.
I’d have died just to make a point.

I appreciate the ivy’s forgiveness
I’m just not sure I respect it anymore.
