Bleeding plains

Bleeding plains

The plains are bleeding

in red and green

stretching boundlessly

till the distant mountains


They smell of alien perfumes

and are home to unknown winged seeds

and little marshes

hidden between tall grass and moss clouds


When you walk on these plains

you need to be careful where you lay your foot


But if you let that worry overwhelm you

you can’t pay attention to all the beauty around



“Bleeding plains” is a watercolor I painted
