The Poppy and The Bee


Playing with light

Shades, colors, shapes and

Matter, eyes of photographers


Just like those of painters –

Though using different tools –

Diligently portray Nature’s miracles,


From microscopic to gigantic,

Through the intense prism

Of their focused lenses.


As do words of writers or poets,

Images extend beyond eyes’ reach.

They tirelessly break under the surface.


Behind each piece of art –

Words or shapes – there is a story

And you are at liberty to emancipate


From what you see. Stitch it up,

Explore, push boundaries,

Let your soul fly free.


Artists’ minds scout into hearts –

Tackling events at their core,

Lifting up veils,


Layering tales, mystifying worlds –

They create myriads of lores

Passed down by folks.


Ultimately though,

Readers, art enthusiasts,

And chance passers-by are


The real artists.

Their attentive numbers

And exerted eyes constitute


The numerous witnesses,

Who channel art to life. Work nears

 Meaninglessness, if it does not reach out.



“The Poppy and the Bee” was taken in Veynes, Hautes-Alpes, France, on June 26th, 2016, with my iPhone 5C using HDR settings. I captured it as a wider shot and then cropped it to satisfy the rendering I wanted.
