It was a sun-kiss time 
a last-kiss time
on a rain cloud day
and the sun took care
to touch and touch
each tree, each leaf;
5.27 pm on Sunday
is a time of greater sun
but yesterday
it was goodbye light
that fell
soft as all partings
made of love
warm embrace making hard green
light alighting for the apple shade,
one hue to thebu
two for plantain,
one for the big leaves
and a brush of lightness
for the yet to open hopefuls,
one for guava and another for guava leaf,
the jambu had a spectrum,
the karapincha got a splash
but not the kohomba
and then it was over
but green will never be green again
and I
will never be me.
