Drabble: "Any Tree, Every Tree"

Title: Any Tree, Every Tree

For the "White Tree" challenge. Extremely blank verse.

Any Tree, Every Tree

To Faramir's mind, any tree in Gondor could be the White Tree.

Any tree, every tree
Gleaming in midsummer moonlight, or glistening with midwinter ice
Shimmering with springtime blossom, or autumn leaves sere as bleached bones.
Yet white is not one color: white encompasses all.
Tender green buds tightly furled, full of promise
Soft-shadowed dusky groves where lovers plight their troth
Red berries of holly, of rowan, of ash, bright against the snow.
All these, and more. Any tree, every tree.

Any tree, every tree, that lives and breathes in Gondor is, to Faramir's mind and heart, the White Tree.
