The Importance of Green

I wore the green
of spring
I wore the green 
to give
I wore the green 
on days I thought
I could never sing

I walked the green 
in spring
I walked the green
to think
I walked the green
to let its life
into my heart … sink

I felt the green
of life
Release pain and stress 
and strife
It filled my mind and soul 
with fire 
creative passion inspired.

The downdraft slams the ground
blasting wind down the mountainside
ripping words from my soul 

Phrases slap against my mind
like my hair whipping
against my face
until my eyes fill with tears

It stings 
vision blurs
and I’m blind to all else

The gusts die down
the moment passes
I am left gasping and staring
at the debris
strewn across the page

Slowly I pick myself up
gather my thoughts
sort through 
the scattering of words

A poem is released.
