Summary: Written for the Aragorn Angst Prompt #70—Green. A prose poem about the end of the War of the Ring. As green is one of my favorite colors, I couldn't resist. :)
Final word count: 130 (Not including any author notes or "The End.")
The colors of all things new,
The color of every living plant,
The color of a new dawn,
A new hope.
The color of the Shire in the spring,
Of the bright hills and trees,
Of the crops that grow
And the gardens planted.
The color of Pelennor when spring awakens,
The weathered fields awash with the color,
The endless sea of grass,
The vast emptiness of the plains.
The color of the forests of Eryn Lasgalen,
No longer dark and filled with evil,
But light and filled with good,
It is a symbol of victory.
The colors of all things fresh,
The color of all that live,
The color of a new season,
A new ambition.
Laeg – green
Ethuil – spring
