Before my eyes brilliant colour, perfection
Dancing gracefully in every direction,
The world of trees, the art of nature

    Yes, great subject. I was even thinking something along the lines of this poem's theme last time I took a hike in the George Washington National Forest. I was thinking about how beautiful and intricate nature is. This poem focuses on the vibrant colors, but the thing that I love about nature is the incredibly detailed nature of reality. Even in a single tree, you've got thousands of leaves, each leave with thousands of little details, and thousands of details in the bark of the tree. (Report) Reply
