Your heart is the color of emerald and it is also every imaginable shade of green, from the deepest pine forest in the middle of winter to that bright, fresh new green of spring. It’s the rich leaves of an oak tree in the fullness of summer. It is the emerald waters of our beloved Atlantic, that Caribbean blue-green that makes you simply want to dive and soar and drift and float in the Mother’s Tsunami of Love.
