Canvas


Before my eyes brilliant colour, perfection
Dancing gracefully in every direction,
The world of trees, the art of nature
Are simple reasons for a painter.

The power mother nature can release
Could make a painting, a masterpiece
A gallery of natures finest hues,
Enough to stir the most reluctant muse.

Should mother nature tutor me in art
My tree would show a living beating heart,
And should I save one single living tree
My canvas would inspire the world to see.

Red, orange, yellow, green and brown
Colours of beauty my brush would put down
Bright and vibrant Maple Red and Golden Oak
Living, breathing felt with every brush stroke..

    Yes, great subject. I was even thinking something along the lines of this poem's theme last time I took a hike in the George Washington National Forest. I was thinking about how beautiful and intricate nature is. This poem focuses on the vibrant colors, but the thing that I love about nature is the incredibly detailed nature of reality. Even in a single tree, you've got thousands of leaves, each leave with thousands of little details, and thousands of details in the bark of the tree. (Report) Reply

    I agree with you, Hazel Connelly. I, too, write and paint. Earth is one of my favorite artists. :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
