Sarah E. White - One Poem


Craggy jagged rock faces
Anchored with evergreens
Springing forth reaching skyward
Defying gravity
Defying logic with their life
Evergreen even now
With the plowed and fallow fields
Of a countryside lost to harvest
The greenest of greens endure
The color of hope in this bleak season
This grey and dreary time
Unnoticed in summer or spring
Overlooked during the thriving bloom of prosperity
Camouflaged by the rest
Hidden within the unsteady greens of change
My eye is drawn now to its cool tender branches
As they ripple gently in the harsh weather
That has torn all the other color from the landscape
All traces of life scraped away
I long to be an evergreen
Forever thriving
Drawing life from little
Steady and green
Anchored safely to the rocks
Snuggled securely in the deepest greens of health and living
A glimmer of hope for the rest of the world
That has been tattered by the seasons of life
