respect fragile things

Red Poppy

red poppy by Robert Draves (@draves.robert)

 

leaves home for war
fresh budding youth with
proud ideal to serve country

 

mother cherishes each
scripted word of letters home,
hopeful heart brightens like flower

 

bomb blooms open, cries
for her as red blood darkens soil…
his flag-draped casket returns home

lavender shade’s wild desire

scent of chocolate

now i lay me down

A “gentle scent of lavender” at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai today…

 

pillowed prayers’ peace

gentle scent of lavender

perfumes silent dreams

purple fields in evening praise

raise reverent cloistered blooms
