Treasure Island

Godfrey Morris

Nature Paints


Nature Paints

Nature paints the sky in blue,
Then adds the fluffy spots of white
Which sometimes hide the fuel
Of fiery sphere - light
A relief that gives a gracious smile

Nature paints the high mountains green
An emerald of an incline climb
Extending stairway to heavenly dreams,
The peak is in a target's reach

Our nature paints the dark stained soil
A symbol for our hard day's toil
What in its core does treasure hides?
Seek the rainbow you will find
All colors that our artist binds

    Such an elegant poem! I'd almost place your poem in the romantic era (1800s) where there was such a boom in nature related works of art, paintings and music. I loved the images you painted for me. I recently watched a short clips of flowers blooming. The cinematographer was amazing in capturing the process of something so seemingly small, as a flower blooming, but at the same time absolutely marvelous, even spiritual! Your poem brings about the romance of simple things in life! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
