Plain-Capped Starthroat

Image – Plain-capped Starthroat from

Green is the dragonfly, as magnificent as cat’s eyes

Green is the toad, hopping coolly down the road

Green is the Parakeet, so noisy yet neat

Green is life and growth, like the Plain-capped Starthroat

Green is harmony and healing, after one’s been sent reeling

Serenity of heart, when needed, it imparts

 Peace of the heart, and tranquility that restarts

Us when we’re down, and helps replace smiles where there were frowns

So open the door wide, to the harmony green abides

Inside of our hearts, and make it part

Of who we are, and wave au revoir

To that cranky old us, that once made a fuss

Over tiny little things, that were simply material strings

That mean little in the scheme, of what we’re to glean

From this crazy life journey, with green our glorious gurney

To goodness and grace, and happiness in the face

Of all of life’s challenges, no matter its ravages

For green is the color, that like no other

Heals from inside, and helps us survive.
