"Litlle Poetry" by JD

"Long, navy green-blue and perfectly straight hairy legs,
Coming down from the rolling clouds
Heavy rain, mist and an aroma of sweet apricots
Is being left like a thread behind
The legs walk slowly, over a tiny broccoli fields, over a cantaloupe melon plantation, and sweet grassy battlefields.
Is this a friendly Giant, evil Troll or stormy Yeti?
….Suddenly it explodes and turns into well balanced, colourful confetti."
