KL Caley hosts the Thursday Write Photo challenge and this is her picture this week
For visually challenged writers, the image shows hills surrounded by snow with the odd piece of long grass poking through here or there.
We shall not be defeated
Covered, or left for dead,
We shall prevail and fight
Unafraid to lift our head:
The white of the day is cold,
But worse is the white of the night
When darkness shadows all living things
Pushing them out of sight.
No, we shall not be defeated,
We thrust upward in search of the sun,
Soon we shall be victorious
As our appearance began with just one:
These hills will become our battlefield,
More and more of us fight for the light,
And when our efforts are rewarded
You’ll see green on a blanket of white.
