Palm Saturday

palms

———————–

Those sentinels of the shore…

Standing like guardsmen; their fronds at the ready…

just waiting for a chance to spring into the action….

Battling the wind

and holding the sand in place…

that tricky, slippery sand…

Always sliding and blowing away….

Until roots and will tame it into

a shoreline sludge…

Yes…

Thankfully doing a thankless job…

asking nothing…

receiving less…

Yet always standing….

always waiting…

Now…

And since

the beginning…

of time…

  2. Palm trees compared to guardsmen..an interesting thought..restricting the slippery sand..lol..that is a different perspective..and this was a lovely tribute to the unthanked palm
