Daisy oh daisy


Green clings to the gourd
Sun shines down on the green
Tiny balls burst upwards
Delicate white petals
Slowly unfold
Quiet is the sir
Warm is the sun
Green balls slowly unfold
Delicate white petals uncurl
Opening gently
Encircling bright yellow head
Softly the nod in the breeze
Warm is the air
Bright is the sun
The daisy reminds us
Summer has sprung


Yesterday’s Rose

As autumn arrives
Your petals slowly fade
Your precious bloom
Almost gone
Winter waits around the corner
You are yesterday’s rose
Today’s pleasure
And tomorrow’s promise
That you will bloom again
In the fines of time
