Poppies … Poppies …

Along with the tulips (which I love) come the poppies. They don’t last very long, but their large blooms and vibrant colors are terrific subjects for flower photography. They can sometimes be a challenge to capture, however. Because the flowers are so large, light and delicate, the slightest wind will send them swaying – and we’ve had quite a few windy days here in Salt Lake City as of late.

That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means
that we are less alone,
that we are more deeply inserted into existence
than the course of a single life would
lead us to believe.
