Dying in Sunshine

Poppies & Gaillardias in my garden- Mesa, AZ

Two blush pink poppies in a sea of vibrant strangers-
Pale papery petals fading, dying in morning sun

Author’s Note: Over at the Garden today, Toni is hosting and has asked us to Write a two line poem in which you convey some startling image, an image that juxtaposes two images.  Her example is the poem by Ezra Pound:

In a Station of the Metro
The apparition of these faces in the crowd:
Petals on a wet, black bough.

Imaginary Garden with Real Toads: In a Station of the Metro
