Poppy Haiku by Virginie Colline


The Corn Poppy by Kees van Dongen


Red poppy petals

the pulse of the cicadas

in the summer’s heart


A puff of autumn

the chill of the coming rain

through her poplin blouse


Her face grows paler

under the crimson lampshades

she falls out of love


A forgotten tear

in the corner of her eye

a very far cry



a line, (a blue one)


The picture is The corn Poppy by Kees van Dongen


a line, (a blue one)
