Popular Poppies

A dozen breadseed poppies
blossoms pink and lavender
amid the blue green foliage and 
bumpy round unripe seedpods.
At the center of each blossom 
a fat chartreuse button
wears an Elizabethan ruff of 
creamy stamens buzzing
with two or three, or even four, 
golden honey bees per flower.
