Link with 869: Embedded.

[Inevitably some peoples' Remembrance Day poppies sometimes manage to come loose. The one in this haiku found its way into a puddle that later froze over...perhaps as a reminder in kind of the hardships our soldiers suffered on our behalf.]

All your ice/snow ones have been thought provoking.
Just listening to the rain and thinking about the melting ice, and poppy floating down the sewage pipe, to the creek and headed for the oceon.

Where it will be eaten by a grouper.
The fishing boat will snag the grouper and the lady at the fish processing plant with the missing finger (she learned slowly to use her sharp blade) will slice it open, be delighted by the soggy red plastic bloom, tenderly remove it, and take it home to her little bowl of fish gut suprises that she saves to show her grandchildren.
