Poem: A Landscape

A Landscape

Land, green-brown;
Sea, brown-grey;
Island, dull peacock blue;
Sky, stone-grey.

I like the imagery of this poem. What’s interesting is that the sea is brown-grey and the island is blue.

“A Landscape” was originally Japanese. If anyone can send in the original, I’d love to add it here. Please email me at lisa@mamalisa.com .
