(Still) Green Grass

I look at
the beautiful life
you have on display

And I dare not
even catch
a cold of envy
from your lovely boutique
of happiness,

I do not know
how you earned
those stripes of smiles
you’ve been passing out
with such love and generosity

So I turn myself around,
happy to return
to my side of
the (still) green grass.
