Never ever give up

The opening stands waiting
for the final cut to sever,
the majestic beauty reduced
to wooden cityscape defined.
Time passes unaware
as changes betray the passing,
small life born anew
rising up,
never giving up.
Resilience in action
the shoots raise their arms to the sky,
reaching high as it was born to do,
tiny palm like leaves unfurl
waving gently in the breeze
as if waving the flag
no surrender.

The magic banana tree that was cut down after Hurricane Irma has seemed to start again with a new tenacious little sucker. Below pictures of original tree flower, the city scape left after the downing and now the little Churchill saying to my ears, never ever give up.
