Miracle

mak

 

Beneath burnt earth

a lone poppy breathes

its first lungful

of spring air

This poem started off as a haiku written for Carpe Diem #1119 Miracles , but it eventually protested being a haiku. Poppies were the first flowers to grow over the graves of fallen soldiers in Flanders, Belgium.
