Radiant red poppy


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
Boldly soaring
On the summer breeze
To eternity.

  1. Uplifting words, the best poetry is often created when inspired by nature. Beautiful! πŸ™‚ x

    • 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.
