Nature’s Canvas: A Poem of Reflection and Desire

Picture taken by Skendong in the Kombos, The Gambia, West Africa

like art

among other slight possessions
that will outlive me is
the rubber plant in cream pot
sat upon the plastic window sill.

the ficus elastica shades
beaver fruit bowl filled
with tough lemons and oranges
brimming shine lost.

beyond the glass a Fir
forever green 80 feet tall
rooted in the grass. a man
walks past the chestnut
bricked loading bay quaint
in the background.

a magpie darts on its way
and the black bird sneaks
in the shrub.

i would like to name this tree
lime baby leaves springing forth –
if i google it i may paint
like art = a better picture

meanwhile –
