The Vista: From My Room with a View

Blue skies,
cotton swathed clouds,
six-shade verdant trees,

a discarded toilet,
aimless chickens,
rusty metal roofs,
wiring mazes of electrical complexity,

contemplative old man picture-framed by his window,
laundry line loaded with whites and darks,
bumbling Basset dancing with butterflies,

All sun-drenched in light.

    I have learned a new word today. Looked it up and found that “verdant” means; covered with vegetation; Covered with green growth. This blog is short and to the point and caused me to increase my vocabulary with another word from a beautiful and picturesque vista.
