This Green Day

Today I walked by a stream in a world of green and I saw…

a carpet of green

lacy green leaves

underwater green

a black rock framed in green

a perfect resting spot covered in green

And I remembered a poem by e.e. cummings that I memorized as a child.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
e.e. cummings

Go outside and let the colours of nature bring you alive.
