The brown and green of spring

But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8
Breaking out from fine thin membranes. New life , new growth.

New shoots, old roots make a tree look beautiful.


One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth.

From daisies in the grass to laurel in tight bud
to the tall trees above
there is brown and green
with a blue sky above / below.🤣

We are the roots of the tree on which you flourish. Go on rejoicing in your beauty! But remember there is this difference between us that with every autumn the old leaves die , and with every spring new leaves are born; but if the roots once perish neither you nor the tree can live at all.

Ivan Krylor 1769-1844
