We wait for green.
Asparagus, forest, lime, pine,
sea shamrock, tea, viridian, Kelly,
jungle, jade, hunter, moss, myrtle, olive, pear, emerald, chartreuse,
willow, peacock, pea, army celadon, and grass green.
Greens overlay each
other in our yards, in the park, in a
meadow, down in the valley,
up on a hill; overlaying without clashing.
with each other,
compliment each other,
even like each other.
Green poking up from cold, dark earth is
the most hopeful thing.
That kind of hope can't be crushed.
It begs to be noticed.
Spring green will come again, making us smile.
It always does.
