Ode to the Tamarack
Neither fully deciduous nor coniferous. How is it that you decided, unlike the rest of your coniferous friends, to turn a radiant yellow and then deciduously drop your once rubbery needles and stand bare through the winter months?
Persevere Tamarack, and continuing confounding those who would hope to classify and put you in the proper box. You, my friend, are an enigma, not easily defined. Be proud of the unique, mystifying, and awe inspiring creation that is you.
