Stately Poppy

by Alma Lee


Art: Stately Poppy by Artist Alma Lee
Stately flower opens wide
to love
it's petals beauty can not hide
or protect
when the cold winds cut
and sheer
Still the memory is strong long after
winter reigns

This stately flower is a Poppy the state flower of California. I picked the state because I was born there, and the poppy is in the top 3 of my favorite flowers. Something about the fragile state of it's bloom one good gust and it is gone, never to return...well at least next year. It just seems longer than that I suppose.
This was illustrated in CS6, utilizing custom PS brushes, and Petal Swirl action set, Flexify II, and onOne Picture Perfect extension.
