159. Green (Colour 4)

green

As an artist, I can tell you that the one colour you never seem to have enough shades of, is green. The amount of different shades and tones of green in a landscape is astounding, as if God simply could not get enough of making them, but also because of the sheer number of leaves on the trees and blades in the grass, so that there is a myriad of angles and ways of catching and reflecting the light, or hiding in shadow. Creator God knows that one big mass of this colour needs to be broken up; given facets like a jewel to show its true beauty.

151. Apple Bubbles (Aesthetics 10)

bubbles

Bottled air, these bubbles of condensation are caught in a green tinted bottle that used to hold apple blossom body spray. They look like little apples themselves. Droplets of freshness, yet doomed to become stale in their plastic prison, they are nevertheless a little work of art all by themselves.

140: Library of Ferns

fern cf mf 140

Embryos unfurling, stretching to prehistoric patterns. The forest light filtering through your serrations, the unfossilised, fresh-fronded teeth of pure unsullied green. Here is a nursery unravelling then, millions of years of timeless tedium, edenic shapes, untouched touchstone of evolution, perfect pyramids emerging, ancient parchments unrolling to reveal your viriditas vellum, your undeterred, unchanged message. Only the wind rustling the unread pages.

Day 115: Forest

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is a forest, our forest. Dreaming beneath green pine spires and rusting oaks, the coolness of shade-bathed feet as they stand on the leaf-spattered, needle carpet ground; bare toes sheltered under tiny toadstool parasols. Leaf siblings, higher up, haloed in sunshine as it winds and bends through arboreal barriers. Here we open and close our eyes with each breathed breeze, and find our calm delight.
