Green in 44 words

Green. It makes me think of grin and grind.

And grime. Color me green and I

look like a corpse.  But listen up!

Green foliage exudes a healing,

taken not by spoon; it bathes the eye.

Without psychosynthesis we would — will–

expire.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
