What is Green?

November 9, 2011
Green is an oak tree standing sturdy and tall
Green is the meadow's grass cushioning your fall
Green is the flowers pollen producing your phlegm
Green is the thorns of a rose's thin stem
Green tastes like fresh watermelon consumed in the sun
Green smells like nature, tree sap, spring fun
Green sounds like leaves rustling at the soles of your shoes
Green feels like the pain of a freshly formed bruise
Green makes me jovial, benevolent, one nation
Green is imperfectness, love, and creation
