Scenery medley contrasts
Marshes and meadows
Sunshine and shadows
Gentle ripples on the calm river
Foaming rapids in white water
The jungle echoes eerily in the semi-darkness
In daylight creepy-crawlies cleared the mess.
Peasants toiling and pheasants scratching
as I spy a cricket somersaulting
The cactus the desert's prickly femme-fatale
elsewhere a lone leaf floats in the canal
Prairie dogs go popping
while hares go hopping
and ladies go shopping
Swans have formed a fine V-line
The flora too is divine
as bees nosedive in bee-line.
Siesta seizes birdlovers too
Thus they miss out on the hoopoe's song
For the hoopoe, it does not sing on cue
since a bird may sing anytime to woo.
Green herbs and white mushrooms
Ah, birdie plumes and floral blooms
What a medley eh of contrasting scenery
Evening twilight and dawning greenery
Ah, wherever you go nature's so panoramic
While we make and take pictures
God actually made what's so picturesque!
