Green, I walk in your tendered soft,
Leaves you bend,
A path to meet-
Ripened low, tipped with dew’s greet.
Here in the hushed forest
Live wonders unseen,
Paths cut by footsteps,
In prayers at dawn’s glean.
Green, hold my heart in this canopy of-
Mists and lush gardens,
Worlds of your love.
There the birds sing, they fly from such joy,
Nesting among, all the blossoms above.
When I enter your mercy
Through green portals, winds lift.
Soft comes aroma, like honey’s sweet drift.
Here, in your garden, I am captured, beguiled,
All of me dances- awakened like a child.

(The biblical meaning of color Green is immortality. (The leaf shall not wither –(psa 1:3). Green is also symbolic of resurrection which we see each Spring. Purple is obtained by mixing red (flesh) and blue (word of God).
1 Thessalonians 5:23
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.
