Zen Riddle

What artist illustrates all that is seen

With strokes of yellow, red and blue combined?

What great magician gives the grass its green

And colours every substance light can find?

And what composer writes the symphonies

Playing endlessly in this great concert hall?

From whence the hissing of the air through trees?

Who gives the nightingale her lilting call?

What great perfumier makes life so sweet

With scents of wallflower, hyacinth and rose?

What alchemist makes memory replete

With fragrances so subtly composed?

A genius more creative than you knew:

That wonderful impressionist is you
