Green and white...
Colors of early summer.
In our town, the colors of promise
and full lives not yet realized.
Colors of you did it.
with their lip gloss,
and flip flops,
and now straightened teeth,
and now cleared skin,
and longer term plans,
who hug us now like they mean it,
and tell us with softer eyes, I love you too...
a little bit stunned by what has passed,
awed by what might come,
and yet prepared for anything...
past our wistful smiles and misty eyes
and hearts full of anything for you...
into the green and white land of
