Pleasant picture

Brush in hand I gaze at the scene
How can i paint, its beauty within.
How to interpret whats before my eyes
The amazingly beautiful sunrise.

The colours of orange and  red
The shape of the clouds  overhead
The insects going about their work
The buzz of bumblebee is oft misread

I wash the canvas with a pale hue
Adding the oranges and reds to merge
Carefully putting an insect or two
Standing back i observe

That nature can't be bought
By the inaccuracies of sight
Just a flat pleasant  picture
Is all that is achieved tonight.

    Very discriptive. Nice work.
