no.1113

Almost all flowers are my favorites, but poppy holds a special place. Is it the fiery red that calls you from a distance and stands out in the field or on the roadside? The ever so black heart with an almost purple shine to it? It certainly is the strength with which she endures the strongest winds. She bends and bows but won't let go of her petals. 

But if you pick her, she will soon break. What her message might be is this. 
Let me shine let me show, enjoy my abundance but try not to captivate me then the joy will soon fade. 
Little wise poppy:-)

no.1112

Don't know if you got the same feeling, but I am in the mood for something light and friendly. Something like the miniature-painting of today and a poem that fits that mood.
The robin makes a laughing sound.
It makes me stop and look around

to see just what the robin sees-
fresh new leaves on twigs of trees,
a strong, high branch on which to rest,
a safe dry ledge to hold its nest.
This robin makes a laughing sound
I stop.
I always look around.
...
