I've read about them
seen them in paintings
porcelain and photographs
but the first time I saw
Poppies draping the hills
of the Tuscan region

of Italy they took my breath
away. Cities we saw contained
antiques from excavations, ruins,
artwork of the famous,duomos,
wineries,the finest leather,
and cobblestone streets as
ancient met modern. But what
surprised me most were the hillsides
littered with crimson flowers as far
as I could see. The beauty lives in me.
