Treasure Island

Gita Ashok


Grass is Green


Grass is green.
We all do know that.
But sometimes it is greener
and in some places it is the greenest.
Or so does it appear?
Is it for real?
Or is it just an illusion?

Why do we always seek out
the greenest of pastures
when there’s a rich green pasture -
right in our backyard?

When there’s perfect attuning
of our heart, spirit and mind,
green grass all around our own feet
is what we invariably find.

So let’s take pride in whoever we are
and let’s find joy in whatever we do -
for the grass undeniably is the greenest
all around our own feet all the time.

    very very nice conclusion dear Gita. from a simple concept of green grass you went to a form a wonderful philosphy. yes we shall accept ourselves as we are and our situations. then there is green everywhere. thank you Gita (Report) Reply

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
