Teaser:

Green

Sometimes light filters through them
And they are gold —
Not the brilliance of mustard fields
But a pale sleepy glow
As though they are frightened
By their own iridescence.
Sometimes, they are just green
Greener than the eyes of the ocean
And I gaze into them
Wondering if they gaze back at me.
And sometimes, the colours collide
Time itself coagulates;
And I look at that moment
Thinking of its effervescence
I look at that moment
I feel the emerald’s transience
I look at that moment
And know that moment is life.
