What is Green?
Is it the fresh cut grass or the lime in your tea?
Does it feel like the powder when you put your makeup on?
Green is life.
Looking at the bright green field makes you root for your team.
The celery in
your hand.
The green water.
Seeing an island as the green kingdom where
Green trees with leaves blow
silently in the
Money crackling in your hand. You’re on top of the world.
This is green.
