transplanting poppy fields


I listened to the sad sad story
how the war had taken its toll
it left me wondering of the fields
and when they would ever bloom

the story never seems to end
borders constantly changing
women and children marching on
poppies pinned to their hearts

a million miles yet to go


I’ve been unable to interpret
those bright scarlet colors
dominating my dreams
taking a toll on my stamina
night after night after night

this mistress of mine
appears in and out
of my space time continuum
her heart pumping
inside mine
soft kisses on my temples
promising eternal sleep

there are many more
opportunities beyond the sun
than most men know
and those bright red poppies
resurfacing in my
newfound field of vision
are just the beginning
