Going Green for David Archuleta
Posted by djafan on Monday, September 16, 2013
I love green. It has always been my favorite color. It represents hope and the promise of renewal. The Emerald City after the journey. The goal obtained. The clean gleam of grass after a rain. For many months the photo below, found on twitter, was my desktop. It’s from the window of the house of David’s hairdresser from Nandito Ako, the house he filmed the video for “I’ll Never Go.” I find it restful and since I love the color green, very satisfying.
THE GREENS OF THESE TREES THESE LEAVES
The greens of these trees these leaves
The many shades of green-
Olive green and deep dark green and yellow green
And greens I see but have no name for-
So many shades of light and beauty in green
And I with my eyes loving them all
And delighted and made happy by them all-
Wondering why and how God’s world
Has so so much Beauty
Just in green alone –
And being deep in happiness
At being alive
And loving them more
In regretting why and how
I will not one day soon
be able to see them again.
I miss David. On this Monday in September, I remember the greener days of summer and of being a fan. It may not be one day soon, or as soon as we’d like, but we will see those days again. After the looming winter, the emerald cities of tour dates will beckon once again.
Till then, here’s a lovely green video to feast your eyes and ears on.
