today is Alphabe-Thursday and we are still in Rainbow Summer School over at Jenny Matlock's
This week's color is GREEN
Once there was a girl with green ears and green freckles. She wore GREEN shoes and a dress with GREENSLEEVES. She lived on the "other side" where the GRASS WAS GREENER. I could see her in her world, I do not know if she could see me or the GREEN-EYED LADY; my neighbor. Many of us had the extra sense, the power to see the other side. Some youngster's that were a LITTLE GREEN BEHIND THE EARS, caught glimpses here and there and had to be told what they were seeing-- "The Other Side". Indeed we often would just stand there and watch their world, where everything was a little bit GREENER. It is said that those of us that could see the GREEN GREEN GRASS of HOME (the nickname for the "Other Side") is because our ancestors started over there, and then found a way to break through to this side; "Sun Green", as our sun is GREEN, not yellow like "The Other Side". I always watched this girl with GREEN freckles, she fascinated me. I wish I knew her name. I think she was about 15, a few years younger than I. I have heard the expression; "As long as you're green, you're growing. As soon as you're ripe, you start to rot. " Would this happen to her, is that what happens on the other side? If her GREEN ears and GREEN freckles changed color, would she be dying? I thought hard about this, and often. I am not so sure why I was so intrigued with her alone. I have watched many of her kind in my glimpses into the GREEN GREEN GRASS of HOME.
Of Course, I think "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" describes these thoughts of mine, and my daydreams. I think for this girl and her kind, it is probably NOT EASY BEING GREEN.
