Describing Green..

Green is…


it is love

before it blooms

emeralds unrefined

speechless afternoons

Mint and evergreen

unexplained words

too soon spilled from lips;

It is the jaded ugliness of beauty

the scar so beautiful

it is unblemished.


Green is…

the complexity

truth kept in secret

of simple pleasures

the emotion of motionless

faith of reticence

seen unheard

it is youth—vivacious

wild as honey and free

sweetness to the tongue

it is dreams adrift

the wind trying to breathe…
