“Semi-bush vines, very sweet,” by Sasha in her old room at Bowmore

From an old tag

Semi-bush vines, very sweet,
very, very sweet with red berries and purple blooms.
We trace the veins on the leaves, and imagine
our waterways are mirrors to theirs,
greens stretching towards reds.
Semi-bush vines, tart ovals,
very, very sweet with open hearts and gracious faces.
I kiss the point of each leaf and thank the weepy
heavens for this year.
