Weekly Photo Challenge:Unusual

(Monstera obliqua, Swiss cheese plant, house plant suited for partly shaded habitats.)

I’ve  had the plant in a pot for years. Every now and then I re-pot it with the hope that it will go crazy and run (‘creep’ – its a vine) all over the house. It never does. But it doesn’t die either:) I had no idea what the botanical name was, I looked it up. Where I come from we call it a ‘creeper’.

a clear reflection of words
not spoken, and time misspent

old walls steeped in the history
of personal talks with God

spying on the ants
exploring the peony
always a wonder
