Creeper


Staid and serene as a rustic soul
It slithers up towards the sky;
The fluffy claws cling to the bark
Like a newborn and counter
The mighty wind;

Even the age-old banyan
Can’t escape the innocent hugs
Of tilted circles;

It feeds on the earth and invades
The umbrageous woods
To swing in nothingness

    Why do I feel that it has a hidden message? Not sure if is really all only about creeper only, very nice described here, though the wind of this poem carries me to find similarities within our society, was it intended so or should I try to control the wind?
