Fractals Photos Poetry Prose Watercolor

Heads or Tails, the Tuesday meme from Skittles, offers the prompt of green.

A John Deere tractor is green and the following poem is about green.


Timid sun before its time
slips across frosty roofs
shines on eager buds
small as withered seed,
a laughing crow circles
drops his shadow
on split fence railing,
tree limbs rocked by breeze
dance with snowdrops
leaving shingled eaves,
sullen green grass
unwilling to be awakened
pouts crisply underfoot.
Spring knocks.

Original Watercolor by Sue.

As green is the topic, may I say, I'm green with envy at your incredible talent?

Your words vividly described our home and your art I could journey in for hours. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
