Branwyn's Baubles  by Branwyn 4 Review(s)

Waking must at times have been very difficult; and the poppies for the fallen warrior is an apt symbol.

"In Flanders fields red poppies grow..."

This is outstanding - the imagery is haunting, Faramir's dark hair bent among the blood-red poppies, seeking distraction from his sorrow. And it makes sense that he wouldn't have found it easy to sleep...

A purpose seems the best medicine for sorrow. The garden at the HOH had to have been a truly marvelous place, a place Faramir would seem at home in.

Ooh, I like the visual contrast of the dark hair and blood-red flowers. Poor Faramir! That nice, mindless work, fresh air, and (maybe) sunshine did him a world of good.
