I see green, but not so much.
I see grayed, afternoon light filtering through the new flowers and bouncing off …..new verdant leaves.
Hellebore backed by boxwood is the brightest green in the snowy landscape.
I see browned leaves of last year providing nourishment as they decay, and beauty as they let light through the thinning membrane …
of spent petals and faded leaves.
I see detail in life lived.
I see SNOW, but there are places where it has melted.
There are places yet touched by the sun.
I see color in a landscape devoid of much. But a wealth of texture abounds.
I see green lichen as a sign of Spring.
I see much in spite of the snow.
Am I too subtle wishing for a little more green?
