Green Palms

Saint Patrick's Day is next week. Green sweaters, green beer, giant metallic shamrocks in store windows. All these thoughts of green are welcome right now on this fine edge between winter and spring, when we are ready for green grass and the sight of buds on trees. Here is my contribution to the green thoughts. Palms, stiff as fan blades, sunshine turning the edges into bright yellow lines. They that lead us out of the picture in every possible direction. Out to search for and find more green.
