Day 25

Prompts:
PA- Falling
Magpie Tales- (photo)
Birds: Wildflowers and Gemstones

Wildflowers decorate the sky
Nature’s tune in harmony
A multi-colored vista
Entertaining symphony

Red Poppy, Cardinal Flower
Ruby gems shining through
Bluebonnet, Snapdragons
Contrasting sapphire blue

Baby’s Breath, Queen Anne’s Lace
Pure and white pearl drops
Carpenter’s Square, Cattail
Tiger’s eye never stops

Black-Eyed Susan, Marigold
Amber’s friends a’swaying
Hollyhock, Zinnias
Rainbow’s slide a’playing

Falling like shooting stars
Up and down, red or brown
Splashing life's energy
In vibrant colors I drown
