The Colour Green


Rain in the mountains
Flowers, trees
River rushing through

Peace, serenity
Music of extraordinary beauty
Subtlety, variety

Trees towering above
Hundreds of years old
Enormous ferns below

Rainbow colours
In the sky
Rainbow birds, flowers

Granite boulders
Rocky outcrops
Gnarled, twisted trees

Keep, preserve
Not destroy
Earth’s natural beauty


sounds full of glory
visions grand and majestic
rainforest beauty


Whispers in the trees
Distant sound of water
Running around rocks and boulders
Through the deep, green, ferny gullies

Stunningly beautiful
Small and pure white
Hugging their hosts
The orchids on the trees

This is the land I love
Cool and moist
Unforgettable smells
