Where does the green come from?

I am endlessly fascinated by the green plants that appear to spring up from nowhere.

Like the water starwort that catches my attention. It wasn’t there yesterday. At least, I don’t think so…


Where does the green come from?
Is it the roots hidden from view,
or the light that awakens life?

And where does our vitality arise?
Is it our heritage, our DNA,
or the choices that we make?

What I do know is it’s a mystery.
Our response to the stories
we find ourselves within.

Whether we’re in the water.
Or not.
