welcome me in
curves are slight
a simple delight
jagged tips I want to touch
perfected yellow pinwheel
toned to stand just so
look at you
bright as the sun
you grow and grow
wild at heart
amidst the fields
I wouldn’t gather you
I’d leave you here
a perfect addition
for my red hair
placed through a knot
on hot summer days
oh, yellow flower
why are you so beautiful
placed boldly for me
am I jealous of you
or are my feelings
Thank you, Paul (click on his name to see the pretty flowers) I appreciate the beautiful photo you shared, our new friendship, and then the encouragement to write a poem about your yellow flowers. However, thank you for following my posts, as well. Romania must be beautiful this time of year. Enjoy! (Sometimes our silent followers need a push to say hello. Ours was a rocky start, but I think you’ll see the humor if you read our conversation under the photo.) Happy Friday!

Yellow flowers are some of the nicest. But they attract bees.
I thought they were nice. Do you have any yellow flowers?Do they? And that is a real problem, isn’t it?
(says the lady with loads of questions)
Questions are good! I don’t know. The professor doesn’t have any!
Questions are a whole mess of things! Not one yellow flower? How sad, Duke. The yellow ones are so pretty.
I have those that grow wild and no one likes!
I like those, they hold their color best and stick around for a long time. Then, I get to play later whilst I blow their seeds everywhere… *reflects*
Blowing the seeds is awesome!
Yeah, super fun. Too bad we don’t have any, Duketh.
I’d send you some, but we’re having a slow spring. Not many around!
I’m amazed at the wild flowers that grow in Texas. Just beautiful, Duke. And I’d accept them…
Yes, from what I’ve seen quite brilliant!
Yes, maybe they will last forever.
Another mesmerizing poem, and this one was made all more fun by the backstory ~ and great photograph behind it.
What a back story it was…lol. Ya know, I had no idea. There isn’t an about page to clarify. I just wanted Paul to know I appreciated him liking my poems. My charm almost got me in trouble. I’m glad he has a sense of humor.
Thanks for saying my poem was mesmerizing…
It is a great photo, Randall.
If a picture paints a thousand words!
Oh, mercy!! Thank you!
Yes, I think so. Aren’t they pretty! I don’t know flowers well, but they do help me feel.
Also, its an extraordinary powerful photo here, with lots of expression and emotion. And, of course, you are right with your feelings. 🙂
Such a lovely photo, I agree. I love being able to look at a beautiful image and then try to use my words to explain what I see. Thank you for checking on my feelings. 🙂
The pleasure is mine. 🙂
So sweet 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Audrey, you caught the essence of Paul’s yellow Romanian flower. Beauty, love, jealousy, aren’t they all but three cards in the 52-card deck of the human relationship?
The comment dance between you two was quite engaging, a tiptoe through the WordPress nation and language barrier that wasn’t so big, was it, Paul?
And Paul, you and I have been like each other’s posts a lot these days, also. I say to you, your photographs are dynamic. Fantastic. Way to go.
Hey, Audrey, post a picture of your red hair with a yellow flower in it. You owe to to Paul now.

Mark, that’s exactly what I was thinking. It’s all part of the plan, I’d say. haha
Wasn’t it. Sadly, my charm almost got me into trouble. I didn’t know that Paul wasn’t American. Hard to tell by his photo and there isn’t an about page, so…anyway, he was very kind. I hope I didn’t scare him away for good.
I agree, Mark. His photos are beautiful. So cool you know him, too.
Hahaha! Now, you surprised me with that request. However, looking around, I can’t find one yellow flower. Dang! I know, I kinda do owe it to him, but…
I don’t like using clichés like beautiful, but it’s appropriate for this one.
Thank you, Kip
You’re another one of those quiet guys…thanks. I like when I can persuade the darker poet to say Hi.
Beautiful, thank you.
You’re welcome, Paul. 🙂
Proud of you for commenting, Paul.
