Weekly Photo Challenge: Green – November 21, 2012

You could say that I am still green behind my ears when it comes to blogging.  This is only my first year, so I am still a novice.  Sometimes, when I see other bloggers blog with so many likes and comments, I got a little bit of the case of a green eye monster in me.  Envy is a double edge sword – although it is generally considered bad, however, under control – it could be used as green fuel, renewable energy to propel one forward.  I noticed that as sure as God made little green apples, whenever I participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge, I usually see new visitor to this blog.  So, although I may not have green thumb as it comes to blogging, I am not ashamed to give myself a green light to proceed with this week’s challenge – the theme is Green.  What could I do with the word green.  Maybe I can start with “two green peas in a pod decided to save the world and joined the Greenpeace”  – I don’t have any green peas laying around to photograph – so I decided to photograph the greenback on the green green grass of home.

The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they’ll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It’s good to touch the green, green, grass of home.
The old house is still standing, tho’ the paint is cracked and dry,
and there’s that old oak tree that I used to play on.

Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they’ll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.
