Rehearsal on Glass
Paper is my canvas as I attempt
describing, for fun,
What Nature has boldly and beautifully done on a canvas of glass
and help from the sun.
Glittering artwork on the glass;
Jack Frost has sketched his best;
Each talented stroke, in early November, mimics January - a test.
Sunshine catches each abstract
line and patterned lace is fine;
Nature's artist, chosen well, leaves beauty in each line.
Not yet time to use the brushes
- fine-tip nibs work well
And windows give a grand rehearsal of what winter's canvas will
