The Green, The Blue, The Brown…                

© Gary Plunkett 20th March 2013

The livid earth
virile green
fertile and fecund
green hearts
green souls
bursts from the vital earth
energised and raw

vitality and joy
in every leaf
every branch
every young soul
springs forth eternal
as the white disperses
bringing forth green joy and laughter

the white melts to blue
blue pools eddy and flow
gurgling streams of vivid life
jellied spawns in muddy pools
gushing life force
rages the waterfall
all power and noise
meandering to a steady grace

trout a-fly catching
the blue flooding the arid plains
brown banished once more to green
stately and languid
wise salmon rush upstream
the blue scatters and widens
diving down to reach Father Sea
the Great Blue
infinite and beyond all comprehension…

comes the green, alive, active, joyous
being, searching upward for the red
the sun, the life giving force,
warmth on the skin
comforting, lustful, loving
lush depth, rousing passion

rutting madness
crashing, bashing, wild, carefree
sated in the stifling heat
loving deeply, madly,
deep ensoulling love

flowering stillness
bees buzz
flutterbys alight
stately sipping nectar
harsh light ever browning
languid summer
dry and hot
browns the earth
parched ochres

reds, yellows, browns
beautiful fall
beds of leaves
lush and thick brown

Cailleach comes
white once more
and then…

the Spring,
turns the year,
the vitality of life returns
we are whole once more…
