Poppies – John Singer Sargent

 

Bloom of love

Blood Moon

Slow waves of light

A girl with a balloon

A field of poppies

Daybreak on the Somme

Ink drops

Blood shot

The loss in every victory won

 

Red

A bounced check

Commie flags

Suffragettes

The sky before

And after night

A dying star

The warm hearth-light

 

Red

The iron core

Within the stone

The Ruby slippers

Heel click home

A woman’s flow

The undertow

Of life

 

Beneath the black and white.
