They say a yellow rose is for friendship
A red rose is for love
If i were to send you one
It could not be either from above
So I hope you know what I mean
When I say the color
I would send you would be green

OUCH...green?  Not a friend, nor a love interest.  interesting.  What exactly would "green" represent?  Just curious!  Perhaps just an over-fertilized dream, eh?

WELCOME TO PASSIONS!

Ah, the green monster doth rise! Much meaning said with few words!

Welcome to Passions!

P.S. Ignore Toerag, he thinks women want to go to Burger King on their anniversaries!

The nut!

LOL

Yes, welcome. Much said in very few words. You don't mean green with envy, do you?

Wellcome to passion
I'm not sure if i join the discussion
Green, the color of calmness and tranquility
Green the color of destiny
Very interesting piece

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Welcome to forums...and since GREEN is my favorite color, I think your idea is just fine!! LOL  And to me, green represents the Emeralds in my rings...who says diamonds are a girls best friend anyways?

Hello Randygene and a big Welcome  
I too, am curious as to the symbolism of green in your poem?
Very nice work and I hope to read more from you..

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

Read your poem again, Randygene...replacing the "green" with the color orange, as you suggested in your e-mail. Completely gives the poem a make-over, and makes it more sweet.  Perhaps you should share your theory with the rest.  I do so enjoy it more with the thought of a mixture of love and friendship!

Well, since yellow and red make green, then this friendship must be filled with love.  Enjoyed the poem and welcome to Passions.

Martie?  What did I miss in kindergarten?  Really, honestly...I need someone to fill me in. All 30 years of my life, I thought yellow and red makes....ORANGE.  What does blue and yellow make, then?  Is there some poetic abstract I am missing?

Welcome, randygene. I know I like at least half of you already.  

Green means GO to me. I hope it doesn't mean green as in spoiled or unripe. I know, it means "green with envy."

I like it.  A new twist on an old problem.  Could green of the flower symbolize an immaturity of under developed emotions?  Just a thought.
