As the poppy is my absolute favorite flower, it’s no real surprise that I am willing to make a trek for a glimpse of this treasure. Yesterday I hiked–a pilgrimage of sorts–in search of “the poppy fields”. My information of where to find them came from a most credible source, but even the best information can turn out to be less than current.
What I found was remarkable…and caught me off guard!
The goal was many
a sea of red
one beauty indistinguishable from the next
one mighty rhythm
Then I saw her
bearer of hope
one is enough
She led to others
shimm’ring in kind
pairs, groups, smiling with abounding grace
radiant crimson, firmament blue
no need for more.
