How she feels today

Listen to the poppy:
she's trying on a different dress today;
seeing what it might be like
to look a little different,
to hold a bit more light
within her deepest heart,
and let it radiate;
to hold a deeper, calmer shade
at her outer edges,
where she interacts
with air,
and wind,
and butterflies,
thinking perhaps that if that calm touches them
it will pass
by osmosis
into other lives as well.
She is no less herself in other clothes --
we all still know she was born to be bright red!
But this is how she feels

She looks lovely in yellows and lavender and blue.
