gardenphoto it’s a shy one written by Jana April 6, 2007 poppy, originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl. Picture: close-up of an orange flower I found this flower, a poppy I believe, in my neighbor’s garden. I just leaned over the fence and snapped this quick photo. It wasn’t quite open all the way, perhaps because the sun wasn’t shining today.

Reply jana April 7, 2007 - 2:16 am I thought of you when I posted this one, figuring that you would be enchanted by the green & orange (the colors reminded me of your jellybean pix) :) Oh, and there will be more ‘oranges’ coming soon…. Reply Christi April 10, 2007 - 10:04 pm I’ve told you about Louise Gluck’s book of poetry, The Wild Iris? Here’s one of my favorites from it:(Please delete if you don’t want this whole thing on your comment board!) The Red Poppy The great thingis not havinga mind. Feelings:oh, I have those; theygovern me. I havea lord in heavencalled the sun, and openfor him, showing himthe fire of my own heart, firelike his presence.What could such glory beif not a heart? Oh my brothers and sisters,were you like me once, long ago,before you were human? Did youpermit yourselvesto open once, who would neveropen again? Because in truthI am speaking nowthe way you do. I speakbecause I am shattered. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
