wild

it was a sight to see
so many people come from wherever they came from
to gather in the desert to see one simple flower

multiplied to stunning effect.

.

these flowers are fiercely protected

only so they can grow wilder

more riotous and blowsy

and i like that idea.

.

.

if you are anywhere near southern california, go soon – before the blooms fade in may.

it’s just two hours outside of the city i call home
so you just might see me back there on another of these weekends
perhaps this time with a picnic basket in hand.

antelope valley poppy reserve
15 miles west of lancaster
park hours: sunrise to sunset
