morning_daises

Yup, it could have been a haiku. ¬†I tried, before I scrapped it all and wrote this instead …once again on the subject of spring and hope and optimism, and not just for a weather pattern.

rain flowers streaked the veined grass
while she smiled daisies
overhead a rainbow’s untrimmable light
and still, she smiled daisies
——
I want to contain her, bottle her
and then release her everywhere
——
No, she says, I am everywhere
when you look at the heart of a lotus petal
there you will find me and you.
——
Did you want to contain that?
——
No, I answer.
——
I ask only for reverence, wonder, curiosity, and hope,
dear precious hope
to perpetually bubble up until it spills
into ever-wideneing circles of rainbows.
——
Then I want to go to the highest skies and ask the rainbows:
I bid you please share your sage wisdom with me
——
Ah, they say, be here, silent, smiling daisies,
you’re closer now than you’ve ever been.
