: here is the poem from which "sketched reeds" comes. can you explain it now?
: Step out of the station,
: I make my way to the mountains.
: An emotion* reminds me everyone's waiting on the other side.
: I walk on the country road,
: Many scenes of childhood appear.
: It winds across the field, just like a stream*.
: In the sunshine, among the woods, Breathing the fresh air.
: No smoke, no shades of skyscrapers*, Nothing I hated.
: In my eyes, full of colours.
: Green grass and yellow grain, flaming flowers brightly blaze,
: Blue lake and white sand, sketched reeds* catch the breeze*.
: Around my ears, full of songs.
: Singing of the birds, barking* of dogs, Wind rustles* leaves and drops echo* in the well.
: Now, it's a calm to my rush of days.
: It's great to return to nature mum.
: The sun rises from the horizon on land,
: The sun rolls across the sapphire* sky,
: It then sets over the misty* lake.
: Every day the sun is new, the life is new.
: Now, old is just new to me.
: It's wonderful to be back.
: I see my house, I see my parents.
: I know they're waiting for me.
: Hi, I'm back, back to home!
Based on the lines that come before it in the poem, it sounds like he is implying that the colours of the landscape are like a vibrant like a piece of art, probably a painting. The reeds, look perfect, like some one has sketched them.
That would be my guess. I say 'guess' because you can't always understand poetry in a precise, literal way.
