Evergreen

sprucebranch

Frozen,

wrapped in icicle lights,

pummelled with Arctic blasts;

snow-whipped,

frigid-crisped,

cursed with frosty casts.

Short days,

perennial nights,

benumbed betwixt and between;

underdogged, trodden-downed,

and yet –

evergreen.

    It really is amazing isn’t it? Does anyone know how we can make evergreen clothing? It would be so resilient it would never wear out!

  2. Great musing!
    I simply love the verses, especially the last 3 lines.

  6. Your play on evergreen made me think about my christian walk. The phrase snow-wipped frigid-crisped sometimes when we live out our faith some people hurl abuse or freeze you out but if you remain focused on christ you can come out protected evergreen if you will take care
