Entry Description: I love to lie on the ground and see light filtered through the petals, finding miscopic bits of iridescence. The poppy is no different in that regard from any other flower; even tho in many parts of the world it is cultivated not for its beauty, but for drugs. Poppy now has a negative connotation. A beautiful flower with a bad reputation. In truth, it's neither good or bad, simply reaching for the sun. Let's must remember it's we who apply that definition to it.
