A Painted Landscape – A Poem by J H Martin

A Painted Landscape

A bamboo forest
Wrapped in mist

A mountain peak
Crowned with sunrise

I see these pictures
On the wall

But I hate the way
Their stories taste

My perspective
Has narrowed

I am too close to the heath

Soldier of The Black Watch
My old steam engineer

Where can we go
To escape the dust of this world
