Wisteria. It's a big gnarly vine that strangles other plants and bears too heavy for rooftops but for a fleeting moment at the height of spring, its color and essence are the most redemptive thing. Wisteriate should be a verb.
Wisteriate (v) - To cause much burden by heft and upkeep but to offer just enough of a glimmer of brilliance that all else is redeemed.
I imagine the original Edenic wisteria, fluttering incessantly, the fragrance of paradise was the only global warming.
I think about a clever Creator that knew how wisteria would wisteriate in the gardens that would know darkness and frost.
How patient He is with us all, in our wisteriatings through every season.
