I Am A Daisy (Poem by mindyjourney)


--by mindyjourney, posted Jun 30, 2017
I am a daisy
Most of the time,
With a sunshine center
And petals of white defined.

Sometimes, I am budding satin rose though,
Unfurling to reveal a fragrance that I've only begun to know.

When my feelings cannot be contained,
That's when I am a wildflower
Tenacious and nodding in the wind
Bowing in prayer to a higher power.

Vases and meadows
Gardens and garlands
I am the bloom of them all.
Just as you are.
Heart-shaped and laughing
We are each a blossoming star.

Brush off the dust of doubt.
Reach towards the flowering within
To find the glorious gratitudes without.

Tied with a ribbon or allowed to run free
I embrace the gift of each unique flowering me.

For when I admire your tendrils of bloom
That is me I see
In our garden of a transformative we.

The best flower is not that spreads fragrance. It has none of its own. However without it we do not look cultured.

It is COTTON FLOWER that protects us and gives us beautiful look.

Over and above it when our heart becomes tender like flower and spreads kindness all over is ultimate.
