Green Trees


road_through_green_trees

I like it when the trees are green

because then everything is normal,

nothing unexpected would ever happen

nothing unwanted would ruin my day.

I like it when the trees are green

but sometimes they are brown,

in August they are brown and yellow

and not green anymore, not green at all.

I like it when the trees are green

even though sometimes they are gone

completely, completely gone, with

nothing on their branches in December.

I like it when the trees are green

again in the spring, like it is now,

rebirth, rejuvenation, revitalization

once more, and I’m happy today because

I like it when the trees are green.
