Greening

Deep into the woods, therein lies peace.
Surrounded, enveloped in green,
lush emeralds lull my spirit
birdsong’s lilt soothes my mind.
I crave thy beauty.
I bathe in your
dappled jades,
in your
calm.

    Fine work! I guess if you must have a favorite color, green’s the way to go (at least for us Earthlings), eh?
