Green and Green

It was just yesterday - wasn't it? - that the world was monochrome - brown and grey.

It was just yesterday - wasn't it? - that it felt as if the lush richness of spring would ever come.

It was just yesterday - I'm sure? - that I'd forgotten green.

Emerald. Fir. Forest. Grass. Leaf. Mint. Moss. Pine. Spring. Sage.

How many ways..how many words..how many phrases are there to describe? A single color? A one that is synonymous with life. With abundance. With renewal. With growth - new and old.

The green of harmony. The green of stability. The new green of this season..and the one that's still to come.
