Feeling in: Green

Green is the color of life.

It is the leaves in the early


singing lazy lullabies as the

breeze gently kisses them.


Green is gentle, the grass, once

covered by the oppressive snow,

yet it rises up still.

It is soft between your toes as

the sun tickles your skin.

Green is what it feels like to 

be alive.


Green is murky.

It hides the corruption of

greed that sticks to the bottom

of our shoes and never seems to come


Green is indifferent. It

is the witness paid off,

a secret kept with bribes.

It doesn’t care who is hurt, it

just wants its payoff.

Green is natural, and slimy,

like a pond filled with algae.

We don’t want part of green,

but with one comes the other.

It’s a package deal,

no returns.

Cold Bones and Hummingbird Wings

I have cold bones,
my heart is ice.
It pushes sluggish
snow-blood through my veins,
sharing the chill.
My skin is frost.
My body is winter.

Fire swims through your blood,
your bones are molten gold.
Heart beats fast,
hummingbird wings.
Your skin is soft, warm sand.
Your body is summer.

Sometimes our love doesn’t
make sense-
how could an extrovert love
an introvert so tenderly?-
but it thrives.
We give
and we give
all we have,
but we receive so much more.
