"Be Not Green" (by Joe DiMino)

Be not Green
When it comes
To the energy of love—

Conserve much,
But also conserve
Acting as if
A near bankrupted fool

It is not earth
Kept fertile
For the spirit—
But earth ripened
Into source

Nothing purely as God
Is every changed
Or lost

I sense a greater destiny

Too much to see
And say
In one short life—

So rest your shortages
And dream beyond

Be not Green
When it comes
To the heart

Seek to enjoy
The whole
Never conserving
As if need be desperate
Any part
