Photo Challenge: Easy Being Green


I’ll take this gray rain
to wet a controlled burn
in my lungs that’s taken my
air and dropped me flat to
ground, scorched and raw.

I’ll take this gray rain
to soften my jaw as
rounded shoulders hang
low, honoring the loss of
an old heart that held mine.

I’ll take this gray rain
to smooth my brow,
while rising to meet coal
ash easing to sky blue,
never again like before.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. I take these photos with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high-tech.)

It IS Easy Being Green!

This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  1. Quietly wearing my heart on my sleeve, the world dares to evolve back to green. I remain in the netherlands, looking for a heart disappeared in the fog, unwilling to return.
