Green Goodness

Green Goodnesspoetry, nature


looking up I felt protected

sheltered by a canopy of green

glowing with light and vitality

yet also tranquil like a still lake

soothing to my mind and soul

a moment of green goodness

  1. Beautiful image and lines, dear Brad! Love the protective power of trees, we can learn so much from their amazing wisdom…you put that so wonderfully, writing about the “light and vitality” that emanates from them, as well as the protective energies…thatΒ΄s exactly how I perceive it, too, when IΒ΄m in the presence of these mighty wisdom keepers. Hugs and love!

  3. “Green Goodness” captures my love of the forest. Isn’t it wonderful that we can’t really count the many shades of green as the light floats down through all the leaves. Happy Sunday.
    Take care,

  4. Ahhh, I needed that. The more I read about how “alive” trees are, under the ground as much as above ground, the more I find myself talking to them, stroking them, thanking them. At first I thought your title was “Green GODDESS,” and that would have been appropriate also. Beautiful.

  6. Lovely! How amazing is the simplicity! The poem comes like whispering notes and hits like a storm. I have been reading your works and they are phenomenal. I just love that little bit of optimism and zest that all of your poems are flooded with. I just realized how even four lines of well crafted poetry make such a wonderful impact. With this poem, I was specifically down that tree in the arms of the bright, benevolent sun. That is how wonderful the imagery is. Love that you care for the nature! Let’s hope she revives sooner or later. As for the rest, sending you loads of peace and greetings from Sui generis πŸ’›πŸ’›
