"Nature's Painting"

Parkway West Middle School
St. Louis County, MO

Nature is a beautiful sequence of life and death.
A source of creation.
It’s stunning to see the bigger picture,
the wondrous, detailed painting of the forest’s struggles and triumphs.

Grand like Starry Night, because it is one.
Bright like Sunflowers, because it has them.
More real than the Mona Lisa, because it’s completely tangible.
It’s more complex than anything we can comprehend in this known world.
And yet it still maintains it’s glory, and sanctuary of a thousand colors.

So why stare at a screen, why stare at a painting,
when the real version is right outside the walls around you?

It’s right out there.
Go get it.
