The Humble Poppy



On my rambles around where I live I came across the humble Poppy , which is not so humble in my opinions it encapsulates  a human sadness of the First World War. So when I see a Poppy I think of those like my great grandad who make a sacrifice for our freedom.







I love wandering through the fields.

I love the wind blowing the corn this way and that, I hear the rustle as the corn bends.

Nature does this.




Life ripples in time I like to think .

A solitary moment.



Things are not always the same just like the billowing clouds in the sky.
