Day 180: The Green in Me


The Green in Me

You are the green in me

The emerald forest of my heart

An energy perpetually emerging

That embraces and gives life air

You are the glorifying hush

The corner of my cherished secrets

A trove of shielded appetite

Which touches flesh in dreams

You are beyond the expansive darkness

Entered whole and complete

Gentle man’s crystalline eyes

Of familiar amber light

You are melting gaze

A night crawler, an evening star

The very view of needs increased

My every comfort in velvet care


You are the shade of fairy grove

Hunger drummed strong

Evergreen, ever moist, ever calling

The budding sunlight in me

You are the brilliant sea

Painted opulence

Pearly grace

Pastels and swirling hues

You are a blended master’s piece

A dance to be seen

To be swept and seized

Within the ebbing essence of my existence

    1. I “is” elven…from the woods….and long to live in trees…hehe…..It is a matter of perspective….like everything in this world. πŸ™‚ The sea is a lovely place, too. Sam

  1. Hello my lovely friend, I totally LOVE your opening lines…Exactly how I feel in the woods. You know how much I need time to be still under my tree. I feel very blessed that the oak that comforts me is beside still waters. It doesn’t get any more still than a manmade reservoir. Such beauty in that special time. Having the woods alongside bring such amazing voice to the stillness. The water too with its gulls and sail boat. πŸ™‚
    My *CAL LOVES the woods, it creates amazing settings for the imaginary worlds she creates in the walks we take together. So looking forward to the school holidays. By the time you wake up and read this comment she will have left primary school for good. πŸ™‚
