Entwined - Poem by Hayat Saif

Life entwines like a vine
On the fence, around the tree
On the hard brick of a derelict building.
This life slowly moves
Entwining anything in its wake, skywards.

Out of a great void
Out of the cavity of darkness
Out of the knot of an atom
Out of an embryo, sorrowful and soft
Out of the Alluvium -
Life jerks up,
Fast in skyward expansion,
Out of a seed embedded in moist clay,
Blazing upward
Power stuffed, and warm like a flame.

Sometimes like a vine
Life moves towards heaven, unperturbed
Sometimes twists
Around the fences in the gaps of building's bricks #
Something entwined
moving upward
And at last life once again in some great pulls
Droops on the clay
On water and on the plain earth.
