To The Red Poppies

A poem inspired by a painting of Red poppies. The picture enchanted me and I wanted to paint a copy of it ever since my sweetheart showed me that wallpaper in his phone. I felt so allured to it that I wanted so much to paint it, but every passing day, I put it off.
I just didn't start the painting.
May be 'cause I was afraid I may ruin its beauty in my painting.
So I thought, Words will do.
Like me, Like poet!" I wrote a Tanka.
But that didn't satisfy the artist in me. So I wrote this, too.

The Red Poppies - A Tanka

I wanted to paint
The Red Poppies standing proud
Against the grey sky
Captured from God's Fine Canvas -
But, then I know, Words will do...

To The Red Poppies

No picture had lured me before
Like you,a few red poppies, did...
The way u stand high against
The green-grey sky is so vivid...

Your bright red petals catch
Every admirer's simplest eye...
The green-grey sky is so vivid
That it makes the poets cry...

Ye, Red Poppies, dance in the gale;
The green-grey sky is so vivid
That it makes the poets cry-
Cry out the poems you hid...

The green-grey sky is so vivid
That it makes the poets cry-
Cry out the poems you hid;
And fall in love with you did I...
