Think Tank Thursday

Poets United prompt #31 is Random Deviation. We had to go to Deviart and at the bottom of the page
lower middle of the column, there is a link called Random Deviation. When you click on this random art work appears. We were to do this and then use the image provided, as inspiration for our poem. This way
it is most likely, everyone will have an unique poem, this week.  This was my random art used to inspire my poem~

Leaves in July

by Ultraviolet Oktober
(a wall of leaves in Gardens Dallas Museum of Art)

Small green buds erupt, tightly woven bring forth Mother Nature's
promise, the birth of Spring.
Nature's New Year showers Earth in delicate notes of blush pink
vintage white and  pale yellow,
Rain showers the land with her fresh perfume.
Season premiere grows and bends the twists of fate,
pathways extend like brain waves.
Time marches on, suntan booth of photosynthesis breaths new life, freshens
Earth's breath.                                                          
Daylight grows,blue skies brighten summer's symphony, almost time
to turn over a new leaf, The veil of shielded green shades our spirits.
Fall's brisk wind arrives,pigments of color appear, a passionate dance
gives one last glorious show,
Soon Fall's grace will dismount, the tricks n' turns of the performance will fade.
The finale of the season a colorful carpet replaces faded brown one.
Bare branched, arms reach out to greet the sun.
December's solemn gray mood will permeate the dazzling blanket of white, soon to
appear. Draping the silhouetted trees and bushes with winter's silent slumber.
Mother Nature,soon will wake them with her warm hug and the sighting
of Robin's first visit.


I love it!
You need to put all your
poems into a book. Poetry
is definitely in your blood,
your words are beautiful Ellie!
A first class poem Ellie. I agree with the above you ought to publish a book of your poetry. It's the greatest feeling seeing a book with your work and name on the cover, A sense of achievement,

Yvonne n' Jenny-Thank you so much, I will consider it, perhaps in the summer. When I can take photos to go with the images. It is 23 here this morning and I have cabin fever. I so want to walk with camera and hand. I miss my walks!

Jenny-Thank you; Hope your class with Misty is going well. I look forward to your new creations! I am curious about her new book xXx

Yvonne-You being published, must of been so thrilling. I am honored, you think I have a potential; Thank you! I will be by to visit; I'm behind, working on a peat pot challenge. Those little fiber pots one starts seedlings in. I dream of spring...

That was really lovely. It's like you dipped your writing quill into a well of springtime and made something green out of this frosty winter.

Nice moods of spring captured here.

Wow! what a treat to the eyes your pohoto and words are - I am looking out at gray grizzling wetness. It is raining cats and, especially, dogs here today:) Melting the foot of snow into a lovely Slush Soup. Good day to be indoors....dreaming of spring. Lovely, Ellie!

Ella, quite a beautiful piece and I love this:
"Rain showers the land with her fresh perfume."
That certainly evokes some lovely images inside me.

Dear Ella,
Your words are beautiful - taking us through the year, the cycle of nature.

suntan booth of photosynthesis
breaths new life, freshens

Daylight grows,
blue skies brighten summer's symphony,
almost time to turn over a new leaf

Do not stop writing ever.
I do love mother nature, wish we would respect her more!
