California Gold

I feel an affinity toward wildflowers
Sneaking out from underneath chain link and barbed wire fences
Kindred spirits
They always make me smile

I stop to say hello to wild poppies
We chat about the sunny weather
and the Delta breeze
We welcome the buzzing bees that come to visit

And we celebrate California Poppy Day, every year on April 6th
