I planned to write a book about the color blue. Now I’m suddenly surrounded by green, green gagging me pleasurably, green holding onto my hips from behind, digging into the cleft, the cleft that can be made. You have no idea what kind of light you’ll let in when you drop the bowl, no idea what will make you full

salut, Pauline! 💌
I was looking for some green poems, preferably happy ones. Just poems/ quotes that scream green and awesome. I found " Arbole Arbole" by Fredrico Garcia Lorca. But other than that I'm unsure.
I was hoping to make a wallpaper filled with green art that I've collected and loved and maybe pop in a few quotes and bits.
Also, I do wish to ask how do you compile these poems like this? do you search new ones or from one's you have saved and know and love? because they are beautiful. Thank you Pauline!! have a wonderful day!

This is yellow.
Outside the window is the rain, green because it is summer, and beyond that the trees and then the world,

It spins like a wheel inside you: green yellow, green blue, / green beautiful green. / It’s simple: it isn’t over, it’s just begun. It’s green. It’s still green.
