The rain this past week has been relentless in my area, making many runs and bike rides sloppy wet. However, I did get to see some dry patches of weather and take some pretty neat pictures, which inspired the following poem:
Canvas of Life
Bumble bee on upon the bloom,
A sight to see amidst the truth
Of nature’s art stretched far and wide
Within the heart of the canvas of life.
Doe and fawns spotted white and rusty brown
Running from the lawn to the woods’ crown,
Graceful and innocent with eyes wide
Beautiful within the canvas of life.
Majestic walnut tree towering above
Spreading shade beneath the rising sun
With limbs stretching side to side
In the maze within the canvas of life.
Puffy thunder clouds overhead
Rising with wonder as the winds press
The boughs of the trees beneath the sky,
All part of the tapestry in the canvas of life.
So much beauty and wonder to behold
To the eyes of the wandering soul
Watching and learning from day to night
As the world keeps turning in the canvas of life.
May the changes within the canvas of life
Allow God’s blessings to be given in time,
And may the colors that grow and fade
Allow the soul walking the road to find its way.

I will try to do a more scientific post in the next few days. All the wet weather has me busier than normal and finding time to write has been challenging.
