Ambrosia Trifida

Hark! Be willing to concede;
The acrid rock, infecund soil.
The rapid growth of weed;
Causing men for hours to toil.

The resilient stems;
Bear ligneous base.
Incongruous nature;
Bear residual pace.

Hark! Be willing to recede;
Enrapture of marijuana.
Follow the call of instinct;
Resisting desire and greed.

A man void of principles;
Similar to soil sprouting weed.
Fear the wrath of the Lord;
Lest the soul starts to bleed.

Hark! Be willing to succeed;
The path to achieving goals.
Brace the vigor of raging storm;
Bursting within the fiery soul.

Through the tiniest cracks of hope;
In the absolute concrete.
Shines the promise of tomorrow;
Restraining from defeat.

    I had to look up AMBROSIA TRIFIDA. Not a weed I’ve paid much attention to before our poem, but now! I will pay attention to it, as if we should stop trying to decimate our only hope of a future. Thank you!

    Sanaa,

    Life can be difficult trying to control weeds, which frequently manage to break through the toughest of concrete..Their desire to survive and to find a sustainable setting, defies our intentions at times, to eradicate them…References to life and living work well too.

    I like the symbols that intermingle with your words (oh they are word weeds).
    A lesson to not be taken lightly – the weeds do make a mess of our lives.

    I like the tiny cracks of hope the best, in this poem…I often marvel at how weeds can find purchase in unforgiving soil and actually survive. Much like the human spirit.

    I am familiar with Ambrosia trifida because of its significance as an allergen that can give rise to severe allergies. A comparison to a noxious man is apt!

    And weeds certainly have the knack of doing that! LOL

    What a delicious and hopeful view of a weed. I use the word even though I do not agree with the concept. Nature favours weeds and we pull them out only because they are of no use to us πŸ™

    so… keep toiling for effort will be rewarded. I always chuckled when my daughters were enraptured by dandelions and queen anne’s lace… weeds! πŸ™‚
