The creeping ripple seedling grows at unprecedented speed.
It will cover the neighbor’s car,
Bird bath, dogs and house in a matter of hours.
In just the time that it took me to type this,
It has swallowed up the tool shed
and pried the roof off the greenhouse
as if it were opening a glass candy box.
It seems to be looking for something or someone;
Its green tendrils methodically searching.
