GREEN THINKING WILL SAVE PLANET EARTH

GREEN THINKING” WILL SAVE PLANET EARTH

 I saw my friend cleaning up his compound the other day. He was digging out the  jungle plants similar to  the posted picture  below.

I said, “Why do you want to clean out these flowers and the jungle green? It will protect erosion of mud from your compound”. He retorted, “They are of no use. I prefer a clean land around.” “It will give you some fresh air and prevent wind carry up dust during windy season,” I said. I was reminded of  poet Walt Whitman who sang of the grass as  “Handkerchief of the Lord.” 

He kept mum. He had no answer to it. I believe  perhaps he got  into GREEN THINKING.  Can’t we let the green grass grow around us while going on  a cleanliness drive on our roadsides and compounds? Can’t we  allow green  moss grow on the  protection walls of our compound? Can we see beauty in the green in our surrounding?  I believe “GREEN THINKING” will protect our environment.

Even the parched land  lets wild flowers bloom giving  life to our environment.                          

Behold the  beauty in the wild flowers
