where flowers grow in barren fields

Amidst the hues of grassy green wildflowers peer in scanty folds between the thistle, of blue-gray, they drink not of the morning's dew for it lingers less in drier air, yet grow within the barren brae. Scant fuchsia and amethyst shades adorn the parched and dusty soil below the mountain's rocky ledge, where clouds of pink swirls linger above the snow capped tips as the sun slips atop its edge. I stand beneath the crimson glow as it brushes against small streams reflecting, an iridescent salmon tinge then fades within the shade cast beneath scarcely grown pines amongst the mountain's dinge.

This is brilliant Sandra! I would love to see this a top winner. All you need to do to make this a Tri-Con is to capitalize the first word in your first, third, and fifth stanza. I am so honored that you created a Tri-Con that is better than any I have read so far. I am sure Emile will love this as much as I do. xxoo
