Earth – Thy Colour is Green


This post is in reply to The Daily Post challenge Local Colour

Imagine we lived in a world that’s all of a sudden devoid of color, but where you’re given the option to have just one object keep its original hue. Which object (and which color) would that be?

Mother Earth abounds in hues of green – imagine soft green paddy fields on the slopes of Ubud in Indonesia, green grass shoots and shrubs in the desert sands, tall green coconut fronds almost aiming to touch the sky and play with passing clouds, contrast of green surfaces on spiky bitter gourd and smooth skin of bottle gourd vegetables, frilly green lettuce or robust green rhubarb on market shelves. Na, na…don’t you mention that green toad sitting on the lily leaf !

If there is one colour – my option is green! Mother Earth I owe it to you.

Green is the prime colour of the world – and from that all loveliness arises’ 

Here is my entry. Which hue of green is your favourite?  What other green objects please you?

About Veena S.

'Travel broadens the mind.' It's been a wonderful journey through the past few years, living and travelling to many countries. Certainly there were few eye openers, at other times just a comparison on cultures and food and cuisines. My blog is my learning journey to capture and re live these moments, share photographs and use technology. Come ...see the world with me.
