With massive apologies to Robert Frost, my response to the Daily Prompt.
Green is the thousand shades in the grass on Dumyat on a beautiful summer day. It’ s the lushness of our woods and pastures and the visual reward for so many days of pouring, freezing rain. Green can fade to grey it’ s true but it’ s also the opposite of it.
Green is freshness and vigour, spring released from the prison of winter. It’ s the green of the snowdrop that gives us hope, not its white petals. Yet, it is also calm, depth, strength and wisdom. It’ s the Green Man, the ancient lord of the trees. It succours us.
