Green light-
Swimming through air like lettuce soup
I open my mouth and breathe in plants.
Leaves, stems, branches, flowers,
Dissolve within me.
I sweat life through every pore.

I haven't been inside greenhouses very much, but I enjoy gardening (sometimes).

I really like this. There is such a lovely smell of life when your working in your plants and earth. :) Nice
