How about poppies
pleasing yellow-orange Flowers
rare in downtown, aye
yet moving your feelings right
i envy no daisy sway.

Can you imagine?
Longer days in the sunlight
Tall golden grasses
Humbled by a cloudless sky
A paradise lost to drought

Golden State of mind
Through fields of grass I followed
Knee deep in unknown
And without Rosetta’s Gift
My heart’s translation unheard.
