Solitude And The Green Cloak

"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." ~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Water brings life to the trees and grass and flowers and they in turn take our gaseous least the carbon dioxide we breath out.... and turn it into usable food and give us oxygen in return. We have been blessed here this spring and early summer with rain... sometimes a bit too much at once, but most often the soft gentle rain that is so beneficial. Everything is green... at night the chorus of frogs sing echoing refrains at each other across the preserves, the gardens and the ponds. When I sit here surrounded on all sides, even above... with the lush greens of early summer, how can I help but feel relaxed and renewed. This is perfect on a cloudy day when few visitors are in the gardens or have sought out the exploding color of the roses or the new butterfly pavilion... it is then that this picture of solitude beckons me.

Carmi's weekly theme for this evening is "green" and Watery Wednesday is up too.
