Carpe Diem #666 Poppies

As you may notice my thought went everywhere with this prompt, from my daughter in the play to gardens, and veterans.

She tears red poppies
that I spent hours making
oh, that wicked witch

poppy seed heads
stark against the winter sky
your petals long gone

looses her skirt

full skirted poppies
explosion of color
ripple in the breeze

in the may garden
among the stoic iris
the poppy sways
