Evergreen


 

Evergreen

By : JP Leddy

 

 

Rising skyward for many generations

Rooted deeply into soil and rock

Standing strong, tall , immovable

Giant of the forest, giver of oxygen

 

Birds have perched on your branches

Lovers have kissed under your shade

Friends have played hide and seek

Many have stepped on your fallen needles

 

Forever green against storm and wind

Inspiring hope in winter bleakness

A sacred image lifting the spirit

Evergreen permeates and imprints our souls

    i’m reminded of of the Jack Pines that are the first to cling to the lichen and moss of our Canadian Shield…transforming bare rock into life…scrubby and tenacious and brave.

  2. Forever green against storm and wind

    Inspiring hope in winter bleakness

    A sacred image lifting the spirit

    Evergreen permeates and imprints our souls

    …while I enjoyed this whole piece, these lines definitely linger in my mind…nicely done.
