The Green I Love

the green I love is

ever-changing

collage of forest

leaves elated

ivy vines

clouds of moss coating

rocks and roots

transformed by rain and

soaked by sun

that’s the green I love


the green I love is

wet grass gleaming

shining meadows

doused in misty mornings

from seed to stem to

“look how you’ve grown!”

that’s the green I love


the green I love

it does not envy

the shapes or shades of

anything it’s not

it’s quiet in its confidence

it grows

it knows

that differences are divine

that’s the green I love


the green I love

it does not fear

not solitude or sickness or

ceasing to exist

because nothing is

destroyed – it is simply

changed

and so much else can come from green

ambers and autumns and aubergine

that’s the green I love


the green I love is

not one shade

it’s olive

fern

it’s lime

it’s jade

it’s deep summer valleys

and bold winter pines

it’s glorious in both light and night

it’s gardens growing

then seasons slowing

that’s the green I love
