I love to see you and only you this time… as you spread all over your leaf-liked petals like the very bright numerous stars you'd fallen down magically from the sky your flaming red on top of green so alluring- I am so mesmerized all lying down on verdant plains and some are found at mountain sides more are adorned at homes and in all other lovely places around… you’re so special and the prettiest flowers welcoming the season of joy- the Yuletide March 14,2013 2.30pm
Note: Poinsettia flowers are my most favorite flowers especially during Christmas time. I loved drawing/painting and taking photos of these flowers when I was still young. Second Place Contest: Free Verse Judged: 3/18/2013 Sponsor: Greatest Poet Linda
