I love the color green
It reminds me of life
How the leaves just flow with every blow of the wind
How they turn and die every spring
It comes in every shape and depth
I get lost in the dimensions of green
295 shades of green
None competes with one another
Life lives in green
When I was a little girl
I always wished I was a bird
Perched on a tree—
Always wondered who taught them how to fly or sing.
I would sit outside and mimic every sound
I never realized I was conversing with god
Maybe in my past life I was a bird
Proud wing span I traveled the seven seas
High in the skies
I conversed with god
I was never chained or bounded to a world I did not create
I never lived in a world where dreams weren't promised
I could never be tied down - I lived in divinity
When I was a little girl I was grounded - deeply rooted to a world I couldn't see
I couldn't articulate it but it roamed through my veins
I sat in silence and listened—
Listened to the stories of my past life when I once was a bird.
