I never knew about white poppies . . .
Yellow poppies and orange poppies – sure – but
One day my sweetheart, George and I were
coming home from Nogales when he spotted
at the airport. We pulled over and
George collected seeds.
We planted the seeds in the yard and
one year later there was
‘1’ White Poppy
in the middle of the driveway.
We smiled with delight.
George is gone now and there are
In my yard every year and I am seeing some
Maybe you already knew about
But I like to think my sweetie left
Something special in our community
