In Fields


In fields of grass,

sprinkled liberally with daisies,

they grow.

The poppies!

Taller, stronger,

catch the eye

with their petals

of such a vibrant red.

Once seen,

it is hard to appreciate

the blades of green,

the yellows and whites

of the daisies.

But the poppies lives

are of a shorter span.

And while the blooms of white and yellow,

the green of the grass

continue to last

those red petals fall

to lie like drips

of blood,

as those eye-catching blooms,

they die.

I love Poppies, but they are so fragile. Their blooms a sad reflection of lives lost in battle. A sombre, but powerful poem, Hully!
