Theme: Inspired. Inspired by “The Great Picture” by Albert Bierstadt.

“The Great Picture”

The water falls
Over craggy cliff
The forest is scorched
Its trees are stiff

The billowing clouds
Will soon bring rain
They leave upon the sky
A steel-grey stain

The peaks are sharp
All stone and snow
They block your way
Can’t come or go

But amidst these dangers
Hidden from view
Is a lake like glass
To make us new

The deer tread in
To this pool of life
Where dynamic waters
Erase all strife

This place is not
