Christmas Tree: Organic Form, Artificial Symbol

Towering, organic orifice; 
Spiring, glistening steeple
Wholesome, organic form; 
Brokered, burnished symbol
organism; Artificially-renovated 
Bland, earthy edifice; Bright, 
glowing orb
Dull, lifeless timber; Vibrant, 
veiled oracle
Shielded, sheltered ember; 
Shiny, showcased beacon
Soaring, sylvan sentinel; 
Stunted, cropped cinder
Cherished, nourished fodder; 
Chosen, sanctified shroud
Pristine, woody carbine; 
Refinished, domesticated

    We are having our first laying snowfall this morning in Springfield,Ohio. December 1,2010 what a way to enter this month. It is absolutely beautiful and finds me in good spirits. I have enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Stephen. Looking forward to reading more. Have a wonderful day. Love, Carol

    Interesting terminology relating to the Christmas Tree...They sometimes seem cold and artificial but home can bring life into the tree whether cut once live tree or one artificial from the store or one in a bucket of dirt that is to be replanted the decorations can bring life..Thanks for stopping by and understanding the shaken coke spewing forth like fog..Sara

    I love the sharp contrasts in each line, Stephen. Sort of a "what it is vs what it should be" analogy. Excellent poem! Best wishes, Carolyn
