My blogger friend, Shail Mohan, versatile poet,sensitive photographer, and chronicler of the life-and-times of Luci the dog (as she goes through a wild adolescence), often posts photographs that, in addition to being a visual delight, often make you think.
One such, "Shades of Green" was posted on her photoblog .
Made me think of natural colors, organized colors, and different meanings of the word "green " !

and grew together,
in the corner
suffused with flowers
of every hue
Not for them
with age and white
and they mixed in wild abandon,
to the perfectly manicured lawn
in states of permanent youth.
And as the
shades of green,
they nudged each other,
made way for a foraging squirrel,
for running rough shod through them,
and backslapped each other saying,
" Green means
never having to worry about your color....
Does anyone understand ?......."
