    from up there
    can you see the coolness

    An unusual arrangement of line order, and lack of an article, but it captures the immediacy of the artist taking their first steps in capturing the day.

    Perhaps all of us ought to do that each morning, even if we are not artists, then again, why shouldn't we be artists of our own day.

    Wonderful poem!

    warm regards,

    A beautiful poem. Thank you.

    This is an old poem from my blogs.

    one month ends
    another begins
    evergreen branches
    frame the night sky

    Like Annette, I have done this myself many times in order to create the perfect composition – it's difficult to capture something as vast as the sky! Lovely,
