Fibre optic grass

In the beginning God created the heaven and earth.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Genesis 1:1,2 The Bible
The fibre optic grass as it is today.
A winter weathered mop of bleached thread like leaves.
Its roots in water.
A sedge rather than a grass, cernua.

Cut into it and see the new green of spring.

Here it is in the foot of the vase a mix of spring growth with last year’s thread leaves, losing their connection to the plant. They are easy for the birds to pull.

Nothing gold can stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower,
But only so an hour.
The leaf subsides to leaves.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

This poem written by Robert Frost earned him the Pulitzer Prize for poetry 1924. It is about anything one defines as gold is fleeting so nothing pure, precious, or beautiful, even life itself can’t last forever. Accept this so you can appreciate the golden moments.

Gregory Benford writes about the green in the sea.

In coastal waters rich in run off, plankton can swarm densely, a million in a drop of water. They colour the sea green and brown where deltas form… Tiny yet hugely important plankton govern how well the sea harvests the sun’s bounty, and so are the foundations of the ocean’s food chain.

Gregory Benford 1941 (He is a Physicist who also writes science fiction. Benford’s law of controversy is an adage from the 1980 novel Timescape stating: ‘ Passion is inversely proportional to the amount of real information available.’)

Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which it’s loveliness arises.

Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600-1681 He was a Spanish dramatist , poet , writer and Knight of the Order of Santiago.)

By the way , most of the light that comes from the sun is green.

Bill Nye is an American scientist. He invented a hydraulic pressure resonance successor tube that is still used in Boeing 747 airplanes.

Thank you for finding a little gold of green in a mop of fine optic, last year’s grass.
