I wonder why a poppy. Is it symbolic in any way? I can only think of a poppy in connection with remembrance of fallen soldiers during the First World War. I think it is said the fields of France were red with blood and after that, the poppies grew. But this is a Japanese form of poem and I don’t think Hokusai had the same symbolism in mind.
