Green Gate: Welcome to Nature

Where is the closed gate? Open Sesame may be the password to a hidden treasure
in Ali Baba's children's tale. In this case the treasure is Nature's beauty and bounty.
Mural painting by the author 2015.

Side gate of the author's residence at Lagro QC. The gate is contiguous with the mural paintings on the walls on both sides.

It's a gate in reverse, going to Nature from the outside
     into a humble residence in the city,
where nature is borrowed in make believe sceneries
     on the screen, picture and study.

It's a gate of a far away place, forgotten or unknown,
     pristine by the laws and rules of nature,
away from the influence of man and his technology,
     the exploit of industry and agriculture.

Welcome to Nature, a representation through the art;
     but it's just a shade to the real thing;
to the senses the waterfall tumbles, the birds sing,
     but to the inner being, alive and serene. ~
