Personal blog and Travel Diary

On Tuesday, the second to last day of the year I  decided to make a trip to the arboretum.  While I was there I decided to take some pictures of all the plants that inspired me.  One of my favourite pictures was of a single red poppy.   The red poppy reminded me of the time I spent in Gottland where there were wild red poppies growing everywhere.  Yesterday I took out my water colors and made my best effort in painting the poppy and this is what I came up with.  I also wrote a small poem. 

Dark, light
poppy red
in my dreams
when I close my eyes
towards the sun
poppy red
flowing through my veins
sometimes through
this red mist
I think I see you
shining brightly
