Poppies

Poppies

Turning the corner
in an old oak wood;
we alight upon a small clearing
where light pours in
straight and columned.

What greets us is another world
of undiscovered beauty
and unearthly stillness,
as though this chance
encounter was preordained.

In the background
a warbler chatters
and the yellow wheat
brings the unnecessarily
red and vibrant poppies
to the fore.
