a city kaleidoscopically engulfed in lights

(a 75 ft (23m) high Norway Spruce
decorated with 18,000 lights).

the 10 of 12 given words:
city bare cut foliage look letter refuse 
spires (a tapering structure on the top of a building)
Christmas boughs 

a city kaleidoscopically engulfed in lights
nothing bare, but cut out into a concrete jungle
foliage not just green but varied and bright
a look perfect to the letter nothing abysmal

atop a giant spruce tree regally standing
painstakingly transported without fanfare
taking its place surrounded by tall buildings
refusal to be dwarfed by spires amidst the glare

transformed into a giant Christmas tree
its boughs decked with flickering lights
at Rockefeller Center annually since 1933
national tradition ushering cheers of yuletide

Merry Christmas, everyone!

  1. The tree is always so beautiful, nestled in the busy city streets. It's breathtakingly unique.

  2. Merry Christmas Hank.


  3. Sure quite the sight to see indeed.
