    I was in the mood just now to write a poem about Sarracenia, I 'spose more specifically S. purpurea, but whatever, here it is:

    How you wait so silently, knowingly
    Knowing what unfortunates will fall upon you,
    Being so helpless,
    Drinking your nectar, your wine,
    So becoming dreamy, and falling in
    Falling into the pool of death
    Where they cannot escape
    Yet you smile with your mouth open wide
    Waiting again for more to come.

    No, I don't write poems often, but this had to come out. Just let me know what you think or whatever.

    Lol, thanks. The thing is these poems kinda have to build up in me for while, so I know what to write about, these "feelings". So, when I decide to write it, it just comes out no problem. Of course, I used big words, and compared the nectar to wine, but it wasn't difficult, and I'm glad that it's actually good.

    I like it too! I am in the same boat as glider, I couldn't have written something like that. I do not have a way with words. I wish I did. Thanks for sharing that with us.

    I am also the same as both of you, I can't even think about making poems because it makes my head hurt

    I cant make poems about plants... I make poems about eating sugar gliders... and what kind of hot sauce I am going to use.

    glider glider, what succulent morsels
    streatched out over an open flame
    moth wide open, mouth dripping with drool
    how how I love youre tasty bite
    hot suace I will endow you with
    flavor beyond my wildest dreams
    glider glider... my favorite treat

    well its a work in progress but you get the idea!


    nice poem though!
