720 | The poppies have bloomed – Agron shele, Abania-Belgium

Vincent Van Gogh

The poppies have bloomed

The poppies have bloomed.

They brighten the lips of spring with

their mad red.

They kiss the zephyr

to unravel the petals one-by-one

erupting in blossoms from the earth’s bosom.

They drip the blood of their souls from the veins

to bring more love for tomorrow.

Agron Shele (Albania – Belgium)
