Mother Nature’s Paintbrush

I just rolled it over with my foot, after composting

countless others, and there it was.

As if rendered on a cave wall. Worthy of Van Gogh or Gaughin.

A bruised apple, depicted on an actually bruised apple.

This masterpiece even had an indent where it should be. Not

symmetrical, but real. No artist could have brought those

Tender lines and shades to light. No other artist than HER

Mother Nature, would seek no thanks or fame.

The more I gazed at it the more wonderful it became.

This work of art, in

one tree,

in one garden,

on one continent of our vibrant world.
