Fire of Flowers

I can't decide which is lovelier...the rock, 
or the poppies!
Between the fires in Yosemite a few years ago 
which cleared the underbrush,
and the good water received this year,
there was a spectacular show.
~With a little help from Our Maker~
With Marie's parent's.

Show me a small and shriveled seed,
discarded as a worthless thing:
smile if you will,
that I should kneel in worship
~there'll be Spring!~

  1. Wow, I have never seen the poppies there.

  2. Gorgeous flowers. Must have been amazing. It's a Yosemite I've never seen~
