Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

It usually stays GREEN in Louisiana for most of the year. We have a very short fall and it just goes from summer to winter. On a recent motorcycle ride to neighboring Avoyelles Parish, the sugar cane fields were amass in GREEN stalks. I remember as a child growing up there, chewing the inside of the bottom of the stalk after the hard shell was cut away and tasting the sweet juice, although not understanding how granulated sugar was actually derived from the plant. I still find it fascinating.

One of my favorite songs from Tom Waits.

All The World Is Green
by Tom Waits

I fell into the ocean
When you became my wife
I risked it all aganist the sea
To have a better life
Marie you’re the wild blue sky
And men do foolish things
You turn kings into beggars
And beggars into kings
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green
The fase forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The questions begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow
Maybe when our story’s over
We’ll go where it’s always spring
The band is playing our song again
And all the world is green
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green
The moon is yellow silver
Oh the things that summer brings
It’s a love you’d kill for
And all the world is green
He is balancing a diamond
On a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our grave(s)
When all the world is green
