Floating branches

Wiggling leaves

The picturesque scene so vividly green

The sunlight peeking through

The lavender flowers in bloom

Bursts of color

All part of Mother Nature's greenroom

Swirls of yellow dance freely

In the gentleness of the breeze

Crushed velvet of dark violet

Stands with regal authority on green stems

Explosions of orange shy away

As does the ginger light of day

And the whole world does seem to slip away...
