scarlet poppy drink

Golgotha darkened
  Surreal clouds portend blood
Gloomy hill sickened
Nonchalant soldiers pass time
  Cast lots cursed a boring clime
Poppy gall juice drink offered
  Glimpse of revival deferred
Bore the cross with
  The tasks on earth as promised
Said it is finished
Redemption at last
  Ghost given up ascended
A third day rising
The known world shaken
  Healing started gradually
Long time but began

Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death. In classical mythology, poppy’s bright scarlet color signifies a promise of resurrection.

Inspired by Robert L Martin.
