Mistletoe (Symbiotic) - November 11, 2014

From: Best Hearts are Crunchy

kisses and witching
druids white magic berries
mistletoe

tiny whiteberries
poisonous but so pretty
magic mistletoe

(c) G.s.k. '14

Many plants are symbiotic covering other plants sometimes nearly chocking them at others complimenting them.
I for example have a caprigoglio (honeysuckle) plant which often covers old  tree like the crab apple, then there's passiflora (I think that's the same in English or sometimes called passion flowers) ... but they actually can grow without a host .. it seems that the mistletoe is different.


Linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai - Symbiotic

Here is our hosts haiku:  

dew fresh mistletoe
her sweet scent warms my heart
my first kiss

  5. I like how the words run together in the first haiku, almost like a chant - which seems very apt, given the presence of the druids :)

    1. I thought the same thing when I reread it ... and though not proper haiku I guess, really enjoyed playing with magic and druids etc ... glad you enjoyed it!
