Green Yard (PAD Challenge day 19)
I look upon my awakening
The trees budding,
their new leaves opening,
spreading their filtered green light
over the spring lawn.
The grass comes to life
stretching toward the sun,
endeavoring to touch the orb
The birds fly from branch to branch
then soar to the ground,
searching for wigglers,
Hiding under the recently rain drenched
The vibrant colors of blooming flowers
draws the bees, birds and butterflies,
searching for a meal and continuing life’s cycle.
The vibrant colors of life I spy,
can look good only against a green
I cannot picture vibrant reds, yellows and pinks
against leaves and lawn of black or
I am glad therefore, that when I gaze
from my window,
I see verdant grass
where the butterfly has landed
and emerald leaves dancing
as the bird lands upon the branch.
Green, Green, Green..,
It is all around me
in its exuberant color.
I feel it’s youth
and my strength feels evergreen,
