Ordinarily a one-point perspective

A drawing has one-point perspective when it 
contains only one vanishing point on the horizon 
line. This type of perspective is typically used 
for images of roads, railway tracks or buildings 
It is used to create an illusion of space and depth 
on a flat surface - wiki 

Just a simple scenery
But nonplussed at its beauty
Viewed from that particular
spot at the center
Ordinarily a one-point perspective

How it creates a sensation
Of that enhanced 3-dimensional
effect of its depth

Framed by the unique presence
of an enveloping double rainbow
Scintillating in its brilliance
Fleeting thoughts at that moment

Lucky me to be allowed
to witness such a beauty
that nature offers - gratis!

  1. We'd be lucky indeed to see a sight like that.

  2. I didn't know that was called "one-point perspective", but I feel focused on that one point and then take in what is around it.

  3. Rainbows are certainly magical to look at but a a double rainbow is very rare indeed.
    Great poem Hank/

  4. Yes.. that single vanishing point... a wonderful sight, and a sense of movement.

  5. Spotting it would sure be a sight in any light

  6. Very lucky indeed to behold such sight ~

  7. Lucky indeed. Even luckier to be gifted to share it with others.

  8. nice perspective.

  9. That is a gift from the universe for sure.

  17. Wonderful, Hank! Thank you for writing! Sorry I am so late I had a flood in my kitchen this week, I didn't get to read or write. I'm back on track now and just posted the new images.
