Wild Daisies

Here you gather to sway in the breeze
Magical beauties at ease
Gentle, peaceful
How do you do?

My good fortune happened coming this way
Most grateful I found you at play
Wondrous sweetness
So perfectly true

Right from the start
Chasing off blues
Sing to my heart
That's what you do

Your balance gives agreeable charm
Oblivious to hazards or harm
Facial colors
Do restore mine

Living here among your butterflies
Sleeping under star-dusty skies
Offers hopes
Made without words

Providing so much
So much from so few
Before I must go
How do you do?

I think there is a theme for this morning here. I had Glod pointing out to me that grass growing through concrete is beautiful (which it is) and now Harry's singing to the daisies..

Wild Daisies are lovely. But then I like most weeds that grow by the side of the road, so what do I know?

I remember one summer I was in the city, homesick for country living. I couldn't remember the last time I saw wild flowers. I would walk in the farmer's market downtown and see daisies in the vendors stalls, all dyed pinks and purples, and I would fight the urge to cry.

It's pouring with rain here today, the sky is grey, it's cold and windy, too, so the images of your wild flowers are just what the doctor ordered for the gloom that's been growing inside my head all day. Good to see you're posting poems again!

Glad to oblige, Ken. I had brought a book along to read while my 11 yo son ran down to join with some other kids at a park mearby, and getting caught up in watching him and the others play helped to inspire this one.

Jay, we have a stretch of highway here where blue wildflowers bloom on both sides of the road, and their delicate blossoms appear for miles. Right after a certain turn, the colors of these daisy-like flowers begin changing gradually until they become a striking shade of pink. I get the same feeling when mowers come along and ruin it all.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
