Greenery: The Great Blending

How right it is to love flowers, the blending of mossy meadows with the greenery of pines and ivy, grass, and hawthorn hedges; they have been with us from the very beginning. 
         ------Vincent Van Gogh

Humanity is our greenery: One great blended family, planted from the beginning with seeds of compassion, gentleness, kindness and patience.

               Behold, I will do a new thing. 
Now it shall spring forth. 
Shall you not know it? 
I will even make a way 
In the wilderness, 
And rivers in the desert.
     ----Isaiah 43:19

Take a look above you, 
Discover the view, 
If you haven't noticed,
Please do. 
Please do.

It's Not Easy Being Green

It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or
yellow or gold-
or something much more colorful like that.

It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other
ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water-
or stars in the sky.

But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
like a mountain, or tall like a tree.


When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green, and it'll do fine,
it's beautiful!

And I think it's what I want to be.

    1. It’s funny that the color green gets a back rap: green with envy, or green as unripe or unready. I long for green in the winter.
