Sea of Green

Sea of Green

The wind it reaches to the sky,
Swallows clouds who pass it by,ย 
And as it whips my hair awry,
I scream to ask it, โ€œwhy? Oh why?โ€

A light rain splashes to the sea,
A common sight for a girl like me.ย 

But in it whispers spots of green,
The only colour I have seen,
For my world is only shades of gray,
As I cannot send the clouds away.

Stories of the colours are told,
As welcome respite when days are cold.
But we rarely believe what we canโ€™t see,
And all we have are shades of three;

The dark and starless night of black,
A shade only seen where others lack.

Cotton, wax and string of white,
The shade that bursts a blinding light.

The sky, the sea, all come in grey,
The shade that colours every day.

But here atop a rock I stand,
On a beach of pebbles, shells and sand,
And in the sea there can be seen,
A seaweed of the colour green.
