Green Beyond Green

Pondering how to write about the lush cathedral of green we hiked through in northern New Hampshire, I realized . . . that I'd already written about it in one of my books. These quiet green places touch some wellspring inside of us.


Green is queen

in summer.

Green trills from trees,

clings to Pup's knees,

covers all with leaves,

leaves, leaves!

How can Green be

so many different Greens?

After all that green . . . a little blue!
