Illusion 2


Multiple colours here are seen

Golds and Yellows, Grey and Green

Opal Brown and Red as well

What it all means is hard to foretell

Looking from above at what is seen

Could be depicting a fearsome ravine

Waters rushing down each side

Creating havoc as they collide

With rocks and crevices on their way

Causing so much erosion and spray

Finally reaching their destination

In the flowing waters as they pass

On their outward journey to the great beyond

Albeit a great river or enormous lake or pond

But would the artist find these words an intrusion

Or can it be called a Poet’s Illusion .
