A log of the magnificent journey across the vast sea of my imagination.

Poppies
Poppies pollinate
here to consecrate
the lives lost across the sea.
Their families mourn
with the poppies worn
to symbolize bravery.

Because heroes' blood
mingled with the mud,
poppies bloom in Normandy.
They blanket the land
where men died in sand
to preserve their memory.
