Poetry: Green

Green
Oh, to be the type of green
that stays green through the frost,
when the ground is white and
branches are heavy with Winter’s weight
Brown, red, orange,
the colors of fall
most greens do fade
retracting in the cold air
Freezing, or the warm summers sun
to be green in all seasons,
fresh to the touch
ever holding the color of LIFE!

Writers Digest Poem a Day challenge– day 14
Seeds of joy
Toss from her fingertips
Green LIFE yawns awake
on the shady side of Nobles
Always in spring she is
Radiating beams of new LIFE
Kneading it into the earth
Everywhere she goes
LIFE follows her
or does she create it?
A goddess tramping through the desert
leaving behind her a forest

Brown red orange,

most greens do fade
retracting in the cold air

Freezing to the warm summers sun
to be green in all seasons,
fresh to the touch
ever holding the color of LIFE!
