A Sea of Red

Alison Pearce

Logan Central, Australia

Artist's Description

Abstract watercolour of a poppy field. Title is taken from a line of my poem “Where Poppies Grow” first published by The Shine Journal.

Where Poppies Grow

By Alison Pearce

If the poppies grow no more
Across these barren fields
Will you move on away from here?
In search of better yields

Do you have the strength, the courage?
To till the exhausted soil
Is there enough of your love left
For the effort of the toil

Are you tired of the work?
Do you wish for sunflowers instead?
Or daffodils and yellow roses
In place of seas of red

The poppy seed lay deep within
And dream of sunny skies
In hopes that you will heed their cry
And raise their petals high
