Poppies of the Dawn


Poppies of the dawn wear soft veils of knowing,
Gently kissed by light arriving from the void.

Translucent petals
Shimmer in trembling air,
Deceptively fragile,
Yet brimming
With indomitable purpose.

The flowers begin to rouse the bees
To worship at their golden altars of life.

The mysteries of pollen
Hold the songs of creation,
Crystalline poppy forms
Bringing petals born of times past
To blossom in moments yet unseen.

New morning poppies dance each gentle breeze,
Eternal cycles of being caught in their petals.
