~*~ Daisies of my heart ~*~


I’d give you a daisy
Today
Look at it
Closely
Try to figure
What does it say…


The white tiny petals
Holding the yellow heart
In its peak
Oh…
how many words does it speak?
Can you count?
Can you figure?
Would you silently seek
The secrets
Hidden within this fragile figure?

But
What secrets lie in that heart
When it is too shining
Too clear from the start?
Easily seen
Never really hidden
By the petals.
Too pure
To know
The dangers
Of being exposed so


You looked at me
And silently asked
Why a daisy
Why?
Oh…
Hush….
And try
Listen to the unuttered sigh
And learn
The secret guarded
Close by


A daisy, sir
Would perfectly tell
Of the heart
That hide within me
In its cell

Small…
It’s true
Lost
When it is held by you

White…
Indeed
Telling of the
Pure innocence
That resides
In its seed

Fragile…
Yes…
Yet strong
So beware
And keep it safe
From all wrong

A daisy....
I give you today
Did you realize finally
What does it say?

~~~*~~~~~*~~~~~*~~~~~*~~~~~*~~~~
~~~*~~~~*~~~~*~~~~~
~~~*~~~*~~~~

Thank
you

It speaks of the simplest wisdom which is always within us and around us though we blindly seek it.  It is a wisdom which binds the universe together and which our world so desparately needs to receive and give in these modern times.  This poem resonates with this enchanting frequency and plays a haunting and unforgetable melody to remind its readers of the beauty within.

This is incredible. You have developed the daisy heart metaphor so nicely! I will add this to my favorites, to read on cold and melancholy nights. Very refreshing.

I believe in the language of flowers in so many ways...and how they speak to us.

I'm so so glad that you loved them all dear friend.
