Artichoke green

shadows of pine trees

dark with hints of yellow

where the grackles congregate

*

Fern green

maidenhair and fiddlehead

canopy for voles

dew-drop shower

*

Forest green

hillside jewels

gathered there

locust, maple, oak, pine

*

Honeydew green

melon sweet,

pale as pith

sun ripened

*

Jungle green

touched by blue

cattails and clover leaves

cucumber peels

*

Kelly green

meadows between stone fences

clouded by sheep

floating over stiles

*

Mantis green

rare creature who prays

while stalking beetles

on summer branches

*

Mint green

aphids or katydids

nasturtium circles

tremble in wind

*

Tea green

lightly steeped

jasmine steam

a porcelain cup

*

Celadon green

pale and gray

a range of sad shades

resembling jade
