Da Vinci and Van Gogh were not the first
To paint the beauties of the universe;
It was rather the One Who made
The creation in which the stars were laid.
He had an infinite canvas
On which to paint the very best.
He held a brush yet used no smock,
For greens flew to grass and grays soared to rocks;
Blues found the oceans, and beige went to sand,
Colors countless designed for man.
A few cans of paint were spilled,
And so sunrise and sunset were filled
In tawny gold and the brightest pinks,
Royal blue when the moon winks.
His strokes were clean and crisp
As He gave few clouds gentle wisps;
Flowers began like tiny rainbows,
Centerpieces lovely amidst all which grows
In colors galore and details plenty,
Diversity giving joy to many.
The Painter admires from overhead His toil,
More priceless than any other collection rare and royal.
It is the hardest thing for me to do; describing nature. It has always been a want of mine to write something similar about space. If I asked really really nice do you think you could try it? I get to chunky and blah when I try it.
and/or @Forgewright you could also try and let us offer feedback, but I agree, I would like to read some cool poetry about space... a writing challenge maybe? a contest maybe?
This was a poem that I had read quite some time ago that I did not comment on. At the time I read it I did not know the proxy for praise on a forum, being new to social media of this type. I guess the fear of putting my true feelings about anything on the internet at the time was impossible. The poem however has remained in my dusty memory banks and had eventually been shared verbally by me to a crowd of people. You already know how fond I am of this poem @SerenaLantha. It is one of the reasons I dubbed thee a Thoughtful Poet....................
Write on SerenaLantha.......write on.

Thank you @Forgewright. You are indeed the epitome of nomenclature for linguistic vernacular. Now that you wish to include a response with your comment, I need not bother...........................Though I am very jealous of your ability to do as you please after having read your post on leaving your job. I hope you take advantage of your time and write. You're putting down some kick a$$ poetry this month.
