The scenery here in the South Island of New Zealand is breathtakingly beautiful. We’ve been staying in Queenstown, overlooking Lake Wakatipu, where the scenery is fluid with the weather, the season, the time of day.
Waking to see beautiful sunrises and watching in awe as the colours on the mountains change as the sunsets.
It’s like watching an artist at work – a Godly hand on the paint-brush, where the work is never done, but ever changing.
Scenery that lends truth to the statement, ‘Heaven on Earth’.
Landscapes that inspire the viewer to be creative, by word, thought, music or art. I wrote this poem yesterday for ‘Prose for Thought‘;
This holiday, with only two nights left, will linger with me for a long while after. I shall be thinking of running in the ever changing colours, kicking up carpets of autumn leaves, long after they’ve all left the trees bare for winter.
