Green Quotes

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Touch Cave” by Erika Meitner: bird, cradle, everyone, bed, train, streets, sweep, finger, change, wind, sit, wings

Paper stars and green fizz

The birds with their wings

On the street the kid whizz

Sweeping things with slings

The birds with their wings

Everyone changing trains

Glad that it’s spring

Green all over the plains

On the street the kid whizz

Sitting on his bed

Cradling bundle of his

Old toys and some bread*

Tuesday is my favourite day. After school, Mum is taking me to Irish dancing. I always wear something verdant and matches my eyes. With tenacity, I am learning the basic steps and having fun with my friends from the village. I need to have a rigid upper body and the footwork is so intricate. Practice, practice, practice, my teacher says. After the dance practice, we’re allowed to have some ice-cream and that’s the best part.

– Marta Bevacqua

She felt being in a quagmire

Or being stuck in a dryer

So inexperienced and unripe

Out of her shell!

Hoping her longing she could quell

Hope to get out of labyrinth

She felt being in a quagmire

Out of her shell!

One day she could get out of here

One day she could be free again

One day she could be strong, too

Out of her shell!*

The garden of love is green without limit and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy. Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh. Rumi

A place where lord of the pies live
Where we get green eggs and spam
A place we get green eggs and pies
Where the lord of spam live

Open for the gregarious gatsby
On Wednesday a date with Mary
Mary and the gregarious gatsby
Open for a date on Wednesday

Cycling to a beer garden
To have fish and chips
To the beer garden to have
Fish and chips cycling

The tale of two biddies and mates
Spend their time drinking and eating
Two biddies spend their time with mates
The tale of drinking and eating*

  1. Lovely in green, Lady Lee. I loved the strong statement about green, written by Bob Brown. He should change his name! I adored the leaf quote! Your pictures are so gorgeous making a green quilt on the page, and your poem always draw a smile.
