Emerald Green - Poem by Marieta Maglas

Emerald green is the color of life and of the springtime,
Conveying harmony, joie de vivre and most important, love
Emerald green retains its lively vigor all the time
In all nuances, like those wonderful green eyes that rove.

Sunlight dances across the Gulf of Mexico, a lovely place
With emerald green waters and very hot white sand.
Moreover, we see this green in a forest, a darker space,
Or we can see it in the green grass in the Spring land,

A metallic green body with small yellow sweet stripes
And emerald eyes have the Hine’s emerald dragonfly.
Nymphs hatch in marshes high in sedge meadows,
When sheds its skin and emerges an adult fly.

A mineral emerald green contains the Romanesque murals.
The old Masters used verdigris for them and copper green
To make a deep brown, mixed it with sulfur-containing colors,
Such as cadmium yellow, vermilion or blue-ultramarine.

The green we see in December represents the evergreen tree,
A symbol of life continuing even in that dark day.
We look to the pins and the rhododendrons and we agree
That greenery will return to the world again someday.

The green chosen for the color scheme of Christmas night
Is emerald green, that deep, pure, clear green inside
That seems to shine with light, in the season of white
When there isn't much natural green available outside.

A very ambitious plant is hymenaea courbaril, the tree named Amber
It has the most attractive emerald-green heart shaped leaves.
Like Orchid Trees, so pleasing to the eye with their alluring shimmer.
Lycopersicon esculentum has emerald green tomatoes with dark green stripes.

With this emerald green Van Gogh wanted to paint plastic correctly
Maybe his eyes saw a special nuance, after cutting his ear
He worked all prima, onto the canvas painting directly
From his imagination and from reality, making the image believable.

    Sunlight dances across the Gulf of Mexico, a lovely place
    With emerald green waters and very hot white sand.
    Moreover, we see this green in a forest, a darker space,
    Or we can see it in the green grass in the Spring land,

    yet green sparkles by the rays golden
    as spumes of grin oscillates over murky sands
    thirst of green redeems by light endearing
    earth seems to blossoms by viridity in leaves
    sanctity of love yet vespers by dulcet hours
    heart still remembers curls of night in emerald
    gleams of light when sacrosanct for green
    pine seems to genuflect all across snow by breath of green, wonderful write nature when scintillates in varied green, lovely theme by joy of green emerald,10
    +++, thanks for sharing

    Emerald green is a universal color, it is the color of Mother Nature, the environment and without a tint of green life becomes a bore. I call this piece the loveliest from Mari. You described nature well bearing their scientific names. (Report) Reply

    MARI LET ME BE THE FIRST............................. TO COMMENT ON THIS LOVELY POEM. When i read it I saw myself in every verse because Emerald Green is one of my favorite colours and I can see it through your lovely eyes.(V1) The colour of life and love. (V2) How much I love Veracruz (my favorite resort) - with its emerald green water and so so hot sand. (V3) My pond is graced with emerald green dragonflies - how did you know Mari? (V4) I love pigments and have studied colour chemistry - and what it is that enables inorganic and organic pigments to be more than 'Forty Shades of Green'. (V5 & 6) Green is one of the most important colours of Christmas and when Father Christmas was first introduced into the UK he had a cloak of Green not Red and still does in Russia and some other countries.(V7) In Cornwall in the UK we have a mega Green House covering several acres called 'The Eden Project' and the tropical and sub-tropical plants have an unbelieveable range of greens it is awesome. (V8) in the last art class I attended (2008) we discussed Van Gogh's obsession with GREEN he painted Green Rivers - Fields - Skies - Trees - Landscapes and of course Parrots! ! ! ! . I love Van Gogh. This poem is perfect - Mari - and whether you like it or not i am dedicating it to myself - it is so so ME Thank you for sharing our mutaul love of green. Love you lots in Poetry - JOHN The Big Green Giant X (A poetic kiss for being so so Green! ! ! !) (Report) Reply
