You are a bird's-eye view

of precision patterns,

lattice of moods

like colored fields,

a map of things real.

You are familiar

weathered trails,

and new paths cut by nature

where nothing but exploration

is acceptable.

You are a complete canvas -

The passion of mountains purple

The mercy of lush green

The calm of lake-water blue.
