Thanks to people sending pics from all over the world of my book. Here are a few more

To commemorate the poppy display at the

Imperial War Museum North

A single poppy
That we tightly clutch
Small but significant 
Stands for so much

Remember the numbers
Who went unsung 
For the loss of too many
Too many too young

Who fought for their country
The horrors they saw
The wasting of life
The futility of war

So look at the art
The representation
A ceramic landscape
Respecting a nation

A crimson cascade
A river of flowers

Reminder of some

Of our darkest hours

So reflect and consider 
And think as you gaze
And pray to your God
It’s the end of those days

I recently visited the Imperial War Museum North, where the famous 'Tower of London' poppy display is now located. There is a very moving film and incredible poem by the great Tony Walsh (longfella). I can't recommend it highly enough. GO !
