green..like the trees of the forest

green

green is the color of secrets unfolding
it is the language
when the wind is whispering
unseen in the flame, too tame
in the middle of the spectrum
it is the necessary transition
between
dark and light hues
green stretches between ground and sky
dying to live
then living to die…janberry © 2009

green is…

like the trees of the forest

Great and Merciful God,

As the trees of the forest grow straight and tall reaching up their branches towards the heavens drinking in your gifts of sunshine and rain, help us to reach out towards you, to accept your gifts of love and mercy, to grow in grace and to live and die in your love.
