The Poet Community

Greenery | A Poem by JD DeHart

Everyone here is green,
young and nascent,
not yet having earned
their true darkness.
Never mind; it will come
soon enough. Their hearts
will be betrayed, minds
argued with, and the solid
truth of their twenties and
teens will settle into wavy
ideas and more open
conclusions later in life.
They will rise up the vine,
clinging for sunshine,
and see only the moon.
