We Fell Upon Poppies


There we ended up
my companion Baron & I
it was not our goal nor destination

That lie still ahead of us
Viewable by eye that could still view
What hand could not touch

Some might view it as failure
In that we Did not mark our pinnacled goal
with our feet as a flag planted

Yet, the quest is in the steps taken
Reward is not given nor denied
to those only who finish the race

But the conquerer is marked by his entering the arena
Stepping up to the starting blocks
Entering the batters box

There is no such thing as a strike-out
To he who 'swings for the fence'
'None' strike-out when swinging.

A patch of Poppy's were not our goal nor
destination
It is however as far as we got

Neither Baron nor I felt denied
as we pondered our shortcoming
Feat unmet, mount untrod

We fell among Poppy's
An honored memory unveiled
a prayer whispered to heaven

We fell upon poppy's
and dirt mixed about
We could view our destination

Our eyes carried us there
So we reveled in the sun and shade
As conquerers in swept smiles

Lovely.

These moments seem suffused with a warm golden glow leaving me feeling both peaceful and refreshed.

At the same time carrying a gentle reminder that sometimes,until we fall,we are blinded by the glare of the goal and unaware of the gifts that lay strewn about us.

It seems you and Baron did not need this reminder.

Enjoyable piece.

Ty for your ever eloquent comments on such a simple piece
We both appreciate the pretty bow you added.
