GOD’S GREEN EARTH – PROMPT #99

irishToday is St. Patrick’s Day! So, in soaking up the local color, we ask you to think GREEN! Your poems for this prompt will be tinged with a bit of green. You can write a St. Patrick’s Day poem, something from OZ (Emerald City), an Irish poem, being envious (green with envy), the grass is always greener poem, green around the gills… you can see where this can go. Everything green is fair game… except broccoli. Anyone writing a broccoli poem will have to stay after school and water the plants! Go green, people!

MARIE ELENA’S GREEN IDEA:

Who decided grass
Should grace everybody’s lawn?
Moss keeps itself cut.

WALT’S LITTLE GREEN SPROUT:

IT’S NOT THAT EASY BEING

You live with the cards you’re dealt,
when it is felt that it’s a losing hand
you throw all in and try again.
Shuffle the deck and say what the heck,
you’ve nothing to lose but a lot of green.
Life is not a game, but all the same
it’s not that easy being.
