Turning test

A premature heat
Runs through my limbs,
Urging me to bend.

The tickling of your
Green fingers
Inches over my hardened skin--
Through the layers.

We're turning,
together.
Cold and heated.
Independent and inseparable
Parts.

I wear you like a scarf on this last frosty evening.
Never fear the season;
I'll wear you still--
Through spring.

*Ivy hugs a tree.

I keep thinking of that Batman character "Poison Ivy" hugging a tree when I read this. :P

I always wanted to write something about ivy. This poem is sort of a reassurance that although ivy can be detrimental to some things (i.e. house brick), for trees, they were made to sustain one another.

It's about that, among other things...
