Pretty As A Picture(For Lyn)

It was a pure
bright day.

Purple mountain
resting its head

upon a
white fluffy cloud

wearing a bright green
forest on its feet

as if the world
had been drawn

by a child

who had just begun
to colour it in

& who every now
& then

coloured outside
the lines.

As always, you have the ability to step so lightly into the world of a child, coloring both inside and outside the lines, to see the world from the eyes of an innocent child, and, yet, through the very, very adult eyes of a fine writer. Thank you, Love, for this one. I will never look at a cloud covered mountain the same way again.
Simple words that project a vibrant picture on this readers mind...love it Donall! j x
beautifully imagined! ! !
