This Poem is an Artist, a Rainbow, a Forest

source

This poem is a color happy Artist

This poem is a rainbow born from a seed


This poem is a forest of fairy tale trees


source

This poem is an abstract art

A canvas with crazy hues

Each color vying with the other

To dazzle and hypnotize you

The invisible brush in Her hand

Paints with strokes and splatters

To make you marvel at Her mastery

This poem is a color happy Artist

This poem is Eucalyptus deglupta

Birthed from cracking a seed

It races towards the sky in no time

It yearns to touch its love hidden there

While its bark peels like paint

It morphs into a solid rainbow itself

With strong roots well grounded

This poem is a rainbow born from a seed


source

This poem is a spectacular forest

An almost impossible treescape

Of living and scintillating rainbows

One might mistake it for Eden

Though there’s no fruit for Adam or Eve

But the dreams of others grow unhindered

And reality stands on the threshold of dream

This poem is a forest of fairy tale trees


source

This poem is a tale of Nature as an abstract artist

This poem is a ground born rainbow dreaming high

This poem is a dream of a forest of fairy tale trees

  4. Ah, I wonder what Eden would be like if there were no fruit for Adam and Eve. I do like the idea of dreams growing unhindered....but only if people dream positive things. Smiles!

  5. Your first three lines put a ginormous grin on my face. And it was all yumminess after that. Such luscious description--a feast for the senses.

  10. Eucalyptus trees are so beautiful aren't they. I really like the boomerang form of poetry you used which matches the Australian trees!

  21. Each color vying with the other
    To dazzle and hypnotize you

    That's exactly what an abstract is supposed to do. The varied Eucalyptus colors lend credence to the beauty of abstracts. Well done Sumana, great pics!
