I was interupted , while sitting  on a swing
beneath a star-fruit tree  one warm afternoon.
I looked up  just on time to see a squirrel  
 jump  from branch to  branch and   finally
lost in the leafy gloom. Above  me were 
 the whispering leaves of the  star-fruit tree.
  Thus interupted I took my eyes off my book
to stare around  my small  green world .
Green, a colour that  brings me  peace. It's  soothing  to my eyes;  eyes that are  over- exposed to the glare of the computers, the TV screens and the strong afternoon sunlight.
God has made greenness  to bless the world.
 Now more and more greenness has disappeared from our world. Concrete  buildings, man -made gardens, parks and settements  replace  the greenness that
once roamed there.
Above me  lies an expanse of  pale blue sky ;
sky that we take for granted to be  always there
 for us, a part  of our  environment .
We take  pride in  our buildings ,gardens, 
rivers, streets and our treasured possessions;
 not realising that  what  happen everyday
 around us is more wonderful than all the man
 -made environment, such as  rainfall, sunsets
and sunrise, the spinning of the earth around its orbit.
 Each of us, regardless of race, religions or
what ever part of the world they live in can
 enjoy these natural daily occurrance. They are gifts from God to be appreciated
and treasured.
 God is kind to all.
 Lord,I thank you for the greenness around me and the  natural phenomenon.
With a smile I returned to my book.
