Leaping Greenly

My favorite e.e. cummings poem and some play time with shrink plastic awash in translucent inky swipes inspired these earrings I call 'Leaping Greenly.' The tiny strips of plastic are paired with some of my hoarded Humblebeads and Czech faceted glass beads. I am longing for the return of green and the tender shoots reaching toward the sun that I know is up there somewhere.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
