Green

“Welcome to Greenwater” says a sign near the path 

As we soar through latched greens spring tiptoes summers edge 

and the vibrant leaves dance

Wise and still like an old oak,

Green lives between blue skies and yellow sunshine

Green is first steps and winding pathways,

deep breaths and aha moments

Green is a steadfast friend, a soothing balm,

New beginnings and peaceful ends 

Emerald ripples beneath the bridge

A moment of stillness and a turquoise reflection stares back

What lingers beneath?

Life is found in emerald ripples, dancing leaves, turquoise reflections

And in the tranquility of the springtime,

Green breathes life into me
