Green

Green rumbles rambles rolls and ripples
in all its shades and hues
rustles murmurs sways and drifts
floats on and under the waters of both
chill chalk stream and ocean
surfaces the land
spawns and augments tall trees
defines jungles, swamps, farmland
cools and shades, feeds and shelters
sparkled with daisies
strewn with buttercups
cut red with poppy wounds

Green is waste light reflected back from leaves
by the quantum machine of photosynthesis
that powers all life

in which we breathe

I’d like to share this environmental poem from meadowpatch…

meadowpatch

the smoke in which we breathe

the haze in which we gaze

the daze to which we woke

 

this grey polluted day

hangs heavy with pause

wind gusts toss ash dust

 

almost too late
