Radiant red poppy


image

Radiant red poppy,
So strikingly solitary,
A subdued song of sighs,
Streaming from
Her heavy heart.

Passionate petals,
Velvety veins
Like the wings
Of the great Red Admiral
Butterfly,
Boldly soaring
On the summer breeze
To eternity.

    • Yes the picture inspired my poem. I just spotted this one red poppy, alone by the fence. It was unusual to see as usually there are fields dotted with many poppies, just like Monet’s painting.
