I could not find a poppy photo, so I decided to honor all the fallen veterans around the world with this "Rose".

"..I can't smile or cry anymore,
the poppy is sheltering my body
from the outside life
while my soul is running around the world.
I wish I could have done better,
but I had no time to do it. I left this world in a rush
and decided to lay under a flower,
a tear on an old face, a friend remembering
dark days, a sorrow look on younger generations
and a flower blowing in the wind is how
I know that I am rememberd on this comming...
11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of each year.

what an outstanding presentation, the rose alone, so well lit and showing every detail, but the entire frame and subject together make it a masterpiece! wonderful photo !

This is wonderful. I think the idea is that we remember and never forget. Well done.
