Unbloodied?

Unbloodied?

White Poppy
There is a level of unreality in the level of controversy this one flower engendered.
But I will not buy into jingoism
Peace is is not free – it comes at a cost
Sometimes the cost is the voluntary loss of ego

Egos are high
Peace is deep

No colour egos
exposed
to the all-colour light
of peace
And the poppies blow
in unbloodied fields
