Paint Me A Picture


Paint me a picture

Of mountain cool breezes swaying towering golden yellow aspen trees

Whose quaking leaves silence the sound of the whispering pines

While wild flowers adorn the highland meadow grass and dance to the evening rain


Paint me a picture

Of morning sun, gently caressing the morning gloriesí blue petals

Welcoming the eastern sky alive with pastel shades unfurling

With ribbons of pinks, lavenders, and blues fading into the midday haze


Paint me a picture

Of pink and white apple blossoms, adorning uplifted arms in springsí fragrant air

As butterflies dance in red clover fields and quiet brooks quench

Thirsty fawns, pausing to hear the rustling leaves in the meadow behind


Paint me a picture

Of morning dew softly kissing the delicate roses of cool colors warmed

By the soft morning sun, their musky perfume wafting to frantic bees

Who suckle their sweet nectar to the haunting call of loons in the sleeping marsh


Paint me a picture

Of summer blue skies with powder white clouds drifting by oceans of misty

Blue flax lapping the edges of yellow mustard fields, swaying in rhythm

To the prairie winds and calls of the bobolink, meadowlark, oriole and wren


Paint me a picture

Of autumn trees and multi-color leaves, oranges, warm browns, bronzes, yellows

And reds ablaze in the treetops and pouring their palette of color where

Crisp air brings their rustling fall, and scurrying squirrels prepare for colder days


Paint me a picture

Of moonlit snow on cold clear nights, and barren trees become a wonderland

Of hoarfrost crystals shimmering as new clothes in the icy air

They stand in winterís splendor waiting for the sundogs to play in the frozen sky


Paint me a picture

Of the Master Artistís perfect love, where He shed His blood, crucified, the

Lingering shadow of a now empty cross when the earth grew dark and the cry,


It is finished, echoes for eternity in the vacant tomb, risen He lives forever more
