Medley of Scenery Contrasts

Mushrooms and meadows Sunshine and shadows Gentle ripples on the calm river Foaming rapids in white water The jungle echoes in the semi- darkness while daylight creepy crawlies clear the mess. Peasants seen toiling and pheasants go scratching as I spy a cricket kinda' somersaulting The cactus in imagination, the desert's prickly femmefatale Elsewhere a lone fallen leaf floats in the canal Prairie dogs go popping while hares go hopping But in town, ladies go shopping Swans have formed a V- line The flora is ooh yes divine and bees they form a bee-line! Seista seizes birdlovers too They miss out on the hoopoe's song for the hoopoe it does not sing on cue since a bird may sing anytime to woo Gosh what a contrasted medley became of the scenery Town and jungle, the eve's murk or dawn's greenery. Ah wherever you go nature's so panoramic Painters paint pictures but God actually created what's picturesque!

Stunning! I loved all the chaos of natural scenery and rural life. There's so much going on, that it's hard to imagine, and yet all the somewhat contradicting details made for a great picture full of happenings. It's true what you say... we are all copiers of the one great originality... God.
