Monet's Poppy Field

One late afternoon

Off in the distance 

You could hear their giggles

Mother and child

Umbrellas draw shade

As the scarlet poppies

Decorate their hearts-

Imaginations run wild




*Poem based on Monet’s famous oil painting, “Poppy Field"

Written for Rick Parise's Contest-New Poem-Any Form-5 lines
