Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Every four months or so, the rice fields of Sorsogon turn from bare brown to green to golden yellow.  (The city harvests 11,000 metric tons of rice from 2,400 hectares of rice fields annually.)  My favorite is this shade of green, when the grains start to show and the air is rife with the promise of growth.  This shade of green means food on the table and, for the commuter food for the eyes and the soul as well.

We are, as most Filipinos, big rice eaters.  We eat rice three times a day–sometimes more.  Needless to say, there is comfort in this shade of green.  We will have our rice, after all.  And all things grow from there.
