On the Color Green

“How does the color green make you feel? What are some of your favorite green things?”

 

The color green makes me feel alive. It makes me feel fresh and clean.

It’s the smell of cut grass and the feeling of a cool breeze blowing through trees in the summer.

 

It’s envy.

Feeling a deep ache in your chest over something or someone that’s not yours.

Green is a garden of vegetables and flowers ready to nourish my body, if only I’d let them.

 

It’s the color of his eyes.

The calm they bring when he looks at me, smiles at me, tells me that I’m beautiful.
