Delicate greens blend with brown,
yellow, white in fine brush strokes
composing a landscape in many
greens – light, dark, in between.
Trees broad and burly, elegant and
slim, short and stocky, gather in copses,
windbreaks, over paddocks stretching
across tussocked terraces and hills
edged by sturdy wire and post fences.
Light shimmers on the leaves
rippling in the wind like wavelets
in the breeze on a fast flowing stream.
What a pleasure to have such a
scene painted for me by a
friend for my milestone birthday.
