Poppies In June

When you think of June, you think of beginning of the summer, sunny days, vacations, sun bathing and flowers everywhere and the symbol of them all, poppy flowers.

With its burning red veiled petals and bejeweled with the poppy seeds, these days, it’s inspiring people everywhere.

Not far from where I live, on one of the sidewalks, I saw for a few days passing by, this beauty, blooming in this intense red color. It was a brick-orange earlier these days and by the time I got to it, it was this incredible shade of red that reminds me of a flamenco traditional dress. The shape of these veiled petals look as if you are watching a dancer passionately expressing their story through those unique movements, up close to the stage, it’s almost like you can even hear the music.

This makes me think of something I drew as a child, that always stuck with me. It was my first painting, because till that point my mom used to help me with my drawing class assignments. This was all me. I remember thinking about the subject and not long after, this idea came before my eyes of looking through the tall grass and flowers, up towards our world, as if through the eyes of a ladybug. Loved the thought of it and how much joy it brought me thinking about that small ladybug, sitting there on the leaf of grass, sunbathing, enjoying the silence around and all the energy coming from the ground, as if the whole world was created for her to be there at that exact moment and enjoy it all.

All the love,
