mother nature

mother nature is a painter

every day, she sits down at her easel

and begins to create 

some days, she’s happy

clear skies, sun shining

she allows the birds to sing

and us to enjoy her work

and some days, she’s upset

heavy grey skies and rain

streaking her brush strokes

and causing life to smear

but every once in a while

she is perfect

her artists’ skies fill with purples and golds

the sun, setting on the horizon

bounces it’s last remaining light

off the water below

a photo can’t do it justice

and artists the world over

will try to recreate her work

an impossible task, a stone up a hill

for it is perfection they seek

and mother nature does so effortlessly
