“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
