Limbs on the Evergreens

Limbs on the evergreens outside my window sweep downward with weighty tendrils and silently undulate in gusts of wind as nature’s prelude to a summer storm. And when thunder breaks the silence and lightening flashes in the darkening sky, limbs on the evergreens outside my window wait impatiently to bathe in rain that will refresh them; extend their reach; and keep them strong, limber, and ever green.
