les coquelicots rouges

As if in a dream,
we found each other -
you beamed with pride
I blushed

and woke from a sleep
I didn't know I was in -

a soft tremble in my soul,
a rustle in the breeze,
a buzz in overgrown grass,
a confetti of red,

in my heart
I carried you home

and remembered you
with my hands
as best I could:


  1. beautiful! j'adore les coquelicots!
