Pictorial Tuesday 3 13 18 ~The Artist ~ by Peabea

The Artist 

Outside is being painted today…and the color of choice is white
The paint is falling down and covering the ground
Some branches of the trees, just a touch here and there
The artist is Mother Nature

Upon waking you see a clean white sheet
The flakes sparkle as they drift down
Lightly covering all that is on the ground
No tracks, no marks can be seen
The snow has washed the earth clean once again

Then the hustle and bustle of life begins
Cars driving by
People walking
Animals playing here and there

Slowly the atmosphere, gives a brownish hue
Covering the wonderful white that was there
Like the influences in life
Dirtying her up once again

Patiently we wait each day
To see what colors will be displayed
By the artist that is painting our world
Today will it be grey, white or the wonderful Green
That only Spring time can bring

Actually, I wrote this in 2010, but am reposting as it is snowing out tonight
and we will wake to a snow covered yard. And then we can look forward soon to Springtime.
And also, I really didn't prepare well for today's Pictorial Tuesday and I apologize.
You're Next and thanks for sharing a photo link:

  1. I love this! The color of choice is white. Such a beautiful description.

  2. What could be nicer than this clear andd inncocent white?
    But for this season it's enough, I think, spring will come soon.
    Greetings from Germany

  3. We are in the midst of another March blizzard and I begin to wonder if spring has forgotten us. She will certainly be well greeted when she finally arrives

  4. Lovely poem. :) What a winter wonderland when the snow is untouched.

  5. Nature's handiwork is always par excellence!

  6. Lovely! I am so ready for spring to be here, but I do hate the storms. Then we will jump into the hot and humid summer. SIGH!

  7. We just get grey rain here. That is it. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a wonderful week.

  8. Very nice poem! I think the nature artist will be back to work soon with a palette of green.

  9. I like the poem - do you enter into competitions? You should. I tend to only see Australian ones but I'll flick on any that take all nationalities

  10. I like your poem. Mother Nature is a very cool artist.

  11. Lovely words whether written in 2010 or 2018! Have a great week!


Nothing better than a scribbled comment or just a Hello. I look forward to them all..~Have a great week~
