It carries with it, connotations of vibrancy,
freshness, renewal, sustainability, health.
All this is reminiscent of us, how we are;
How our new love sprang shortly after Easter,
Two days after 4/2/0.
It’s the eye color we share,
Like long stares, up stairs
In my room in the attic.
The canopy of the house;
The leaves and branches
of the tree we dwelled in
It is the staggering ignorance we faced
When we decided to take a chance,
But even in our unversed status,
It is the envy I recognized
When I first saw you.
The attention, the conversation, the consideration
You gave onto others, I wished for myself.
And that compelled me so, I knew
I had only one choice.
Now or never,
The light changed.
