about this story

Some say it was a city, once. That the brick walls covered in scrawlings of another time were the walls of the city. You aren't entirely sure you believe them. It's hard to remember anything before the green, before the blooms. There are stones that sit in strange fenced-in areas. The grass grows around them and moss obscures the carvings on them.
The green is a gift to you. It cradles the planet in gentle, oxygen rich air. You've decided that you don't want to live in a time before the green. You don't know what the stones in the gardens are. You only know they are from before the green, and those who lived through the green cry over them. You hope that the stones are not what the older ones say they are. They say the stones mark where bodies were laid to rest beneath the roots of the grass.
You don't know if you believe them. You hope they are wrong. All the same, you wonder what it was like before the green. It had to have been worse than now, but perhaps it was good in its own way.
