Extolling Nature

Stolen
 
It is all spread out there
Here to eternity beyond the horizon
All the light colors yet to be broken
Sparkling over the visible spectrum
 
It’s all out there as you step out
From your space within as you
Open the windows of your soul
Your eyes squint from the first rays of sun
 
You breathe smell the tint fragrance
Of the breeze all too familiar on a good day
Sat down reached deep into the empty caverns
Of your being for an appropriate word
 
None that you can think of
For what is before you is all the words
Frozen yet put together breathing alive
Lush in metaphors foliage in similes
 
Sonnets quatrains haikus lyrical epics
In spectacular color wheels of nature
Fauna and flora hewn into symphonies
We can only plagiarize and steal.

Nature is very forgiving. Let's help ourselves and defrost those
words in plain sight before us, extol nature with these stolen words.

Excellent concept. Look at the world, bask in nature. Verbalize nature's beauty. And voila!!!

I like it brod!

The lady in the picture gets it! It's all in putting together words like one would with recipes, in the kitchen or lab, or stitching together layers of rainbow colors like that worn by the smiling lady in the photo.
Thanks Brod for liking.
