I like to be green the best because
It means I am healthy and clean.
My leaves blow gently with the breeze
Every time I am by the window with the screen
Keeping thieving pests away from my body.
My mom comes to water me with a
Blue plastic cup
That I suppose must be special because
It’s only for me.
I eat under the sun
Using up all my energy to feed myself
Unless mom dumps a packet in my bed.
The dog sniffs me every day after he
Goes with mom to get the mail
So I think we are friends.
