Painted Trees

Someone took a paint brush

just barely dipped in paint–

hues of light green, red, brownish-green–

and tapped them on the tips of all the trees

dots here and small brush strokes there.

Each day they add color and depth

to the trees

until they are lush and green.

The picture doesn’t do this view on walk justice.

  1. Your poem is spot on! I love the image of paintbrush barely dipped in paint. Every year I watch to see if I can notice when the transformation from bud to leaf happens. It still has magic for me.
