In the End Poppies United Us

Father's Day, Poetry

Written by Kiernan Antares

June 17, 2020

One day I painted poppies

a field rich in hues

my heart did soar on flights

of fancy

purple yellow green and blue.


This painting hangs anchored

wide deep and high

prominent in our home

little did I realize then

the import pressing homage to hang ‘till I die.


These stellar blessings alight

in eyes that which to see

the happy stance

it does burn bright

a father daughter window for all eternity.

Poem inspired by Painting Stellar Blessings by Kiernan Antares (June 2016)
In honour of Kiernan’s father, WWII Vet Harold LeLacheur, who passed away July 9, 2019
