Today, I wrote this poem inspired by Landscape Architecture. Hope you enjoy it.
Landscape — By Matt Vaughan
A series of scenes depict my thoughts.
The essence of life, people, and spots.
They change, they stand, they walk around,
They fill my ears with a special sound.
Concrete, stone, wood and metal,
Grass, trees and some flower petals,
Sun, sand, water and vines,
Mountains, sunset and stately pines.
What is this now upon my trace?
This new, bold, and exciting place.
A reflection of myself and those a part,
In a grand adventure beginning to start.
With shapes and people in the light.
Forms with function and beauty’s sight
The plan, the dream, the answer, the story,
Fall to the paper in unfolding glory
When is this place? Here and now?
Or historic visions that have showed us how
To build, to believe in a beautiful place,
And trust each other, the human race.
The landscapes of mankind.
The symbols of us all.
The landscapes of nature.
Summer, Spring, Winter, Fall.
