A Picture's Worth ( a poem of inspiration)

Vibrant... so colorful...alive...
Vibrant... so colorful...alive...
Autumns colors, so vivid...in contrasts..
Autumns colors, so vivid...in contrasts..
Forrest creatures scamper and to run...so fast
Forrest creatures scamper and to run...so fast
Wild birds busily go about their chores...
Wild birds busily go about their chores...
flower's face to spin and grace...outdoors...
flower's face to spin and grace...outdoors...
Evening lights so bold and bright...
Evening lights so bold and bright...
In a calm...the evening sun sets...then comes the night...
In a calm...the evening sun sets...then comes the night...
Days to end in a whisper...a hush...
Days to end in a whisper...a hush...
Majesty beheld in the evening's canvas...its brush...
Majesty beheld in the evening's canvas...its brush...



A picture...its visual presentation...to be worth more than one thousand words,

When written...or just spoken...of equal worth, values less, by the same token.

Such grace... beautiful captivation... a pictorial masterpiece...grand representation,

Bright colors...in sharpest lights and the dark, perfect contrast...its lines unbroken.


Depicting the night...moonscape, bright...shadows cast...in vibrant values, to last,

Sunset's colors, in multiple hues...in each parting minute..as if to follow its cues.

Fanciful lights to shimmer and dance...on watery canvas...ours, a captivating trance,

Across the lakes, by rivers near edge...its sheen so glimmers, displaying fine views.


Beautiful faces...in colorful traces...flowers to bloom and to dance...in the light, to soar,

Greenery spreading...long shadows threading...evening scents released by the score.

Joyful birds in flight, a marvelous sight...white, blue and green, their feathers, so keen,

Bold fish, black turtles and frogs...all seen, as they swim...to splash, or perch, so serene.


Red fox, brown deer, in woodlands, near...scamper and run...in their forest land, dear,

Wild cats, Black bears...escape their fond lairs...to venture forth...from.lofty heights, sheer.

Butterflies wings...the bright spirit each brings, each to flit and all float about, seem so alive,

Honey bees, busy...their minds in a tizzy...to gather nectar and then return to their hive.


Grandest dawning in morning...comes without warning...magnificent strokes of a brush,

Waterfalls dancing...water birds, prancing...performing daily chores...so busy in their rush.

Autumn leaves, red and yellow...turning leaves, their colors to mellow...fall to the ground,

Changing seasons,,,have a thousand reasons...come and go...an ending hush...no sound.


Pictures...of ten thousand words...to far outshine...do bring to each...such a peace of mind,

Each pixel point, brushes fiber...the paintings made...in graceful strokes...for all are laid.

A delightful sight...in sun or moon's light...mere words can't show its wealth...or define,

Every part and parcel...a worthy rendering...in its finest presentation...artistry portrayed,

Isn't Nature's canvas the most glorious artistry there is? The colors, shapes, textures, scents... are all so magically beautiful!

In the Northeast, where I am from, the beauty there was crowded out from concentrated populations. Once moving to Tennessee and then on to Oklahoma, I have seen such amazing, unparalleled beauty. Beautiful work you have here. Continue to do what inspires you.

If that was not describing fall then I would say it was beautiful. I loved the way that you described each part of the season. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

Beautiful pictures whonun, when I look at these wonderful arts of work, we know many artists that try to capture the beauty

But what is so outstanding is that it is not just a picture created out of thought ,but it is all real not a dream , we live in it and touch its beauty and we are a part of this magnificent vision!
