persistant prickles

the tree is a weird genetically-modified prickle-less holly
but at it's roots new shoots are determined to revert
to their former glory

huge wet flakes drift down
and melt into the icy puddles

in the window a black cat stretches and arches it's back
the fur stands out in exaggerated black spikes

no washed-out fading archway this morning
the rain was torrential, the sun pierced brilliantly
the rainbow appeared radiant and triumphal
