Poppies in the Meadow

    Poem by Pink Butterfly

Soar beyond dear meadow
Reach the clouds so bright
Leave a kiss to the sunset
And bring a glorious sight

Turn to me dear friend
Stretch your leaves so green
Your purest drops from heaven
Were obvious yet unseen

Carry the sadistic wind
To the mountains, stiff and high
Look for the horizon
Where the sea meets the sky

Play with the little birds
Singing their lullaby
Calm yourself beside me
And catch a butterfly

Now, my dear meadow
You may rest for a while
But tomorrow is another day
For us to laugh and smile

Materials and technique: hand dyed cotton fabrics, cotton batting, poly threads, embroidery floss. Machine pieced, machine quilted, hand embroidered.
