Nature’s Naked Beauty

November 13, 2007
By Josh Streich, Valley Cottage, NY

Vast fields as far as the eye can see
Painted with luscious green grass
Shielding bugs from the sun’s unforgiving glare
Give the familiar smell of spring
Trees stand tall above the grass
Whose twisting branches bare leaves
Which hide the trees’ nakedness
By exhibiting vibrant shades
Of orange, red, and even purple
As if the trees were wearing
Dresses made for a queen
A river flows in the distance
Its crystal clear water
Reveals a hidden world underneath
Decorated with brightly colored fish
And Emerald Green Plants
Which sway gracefully in the crystal blue current
As if they were dancing to the beat of cool, rushing water
