Thursday photo prompt: Painted #writephoto

Sue Vincent has given us a fabulous relaxing photograph to work with this week. It reminds me of some spectacular gardens open to the public in my home town.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rather oriental red bridge over a  pool covered with waterlilies and surrounded by trees.

I am the greens of the morning,
So many merge and mingle,
Soft and gentle, rough and hard
I am here for the passage of time.

I am the colours of the evening,
Glorious in the sunset
Casting a magical glow over water
Clear and pure, passing underneath.

I am the bridge to tomorrow,
Knowing it will arrive,
But not what the day may hold,
A mystery to any who alight.

I am a painting in waiting,
From the artist’s eye I will evolve
To be reborn on canvas,
Silent, tranquil and serene.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
