Surely Shirley The Poppy

all ruffles and fringe
purple and orange
pizzaz

Visit


sit awhile
and listen to
the flowers conversation

Going to Seed


fragile yellow lace
sturdy blue crowns
August counterparts

Purple Reign


purple crown
the sovereign rule
of poppy’s bloom

All Is Now


when the garden blooms
memories of winter
are exiled

Rocket’s Red Glare

poppies pop
an explosion of color
with pollen sparks

The Seven Year Itch

poppy’s skirts
lifted by the wind
so like Marilyn
