Green

Green, the color of life as it grows from the wet blues to reach for the yellow sun above. The combination of Mother Earth and Father Sky, their children are green. Green with life as they nurture their riches, and green with envy as they slay each other to reveal the red underneath. Green like the thumbs of the gardener as she pulls root after root, demanding her garden to be perfect, as sweat falls and weeds grow to challenge her. Green like the bruises that you left, hidden on my body after my encounter with

You.
