Daisy (a poem)

Image result for daisies drawing

In old Celtic legends, innocence and purity are represented by daisies. In Norse mythology, the daisy is Freya’s sacred flower. Freya is the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility, and therefore the daisy symbolizes childbirth, motherhood, and new beginnings. Daisies are composite flowers which means they actually are two flowers blended perfectly to make one. This often allows them to stand for unity and true love.

For me, daisies remind me of all that’s pure and beautiful in the world and although I love all kinds of flowers, daisies remain my favorite. This is a poem I wrote last year entitled ‘daisy’, each word was carefully picked and placed to curate specific images and meanings.

 

You give me a daisy

Under a blanket of darkness,

Stars twinkle above

The ground shakes beneath.

 

A ray full of sunshine,

Radiant and bright.

A sea full of skies

As the waves crash at night.

 

A soft touch,

darkening sky

Clouds growing denser.

All I hear is thunder.

 

Awaiting the downpour,

Counting the minutes

I look into your eyes

Savoring the moment.

 

Water comes rushing,

Dripping down trees

And tiny green leaves.

Pooling at our feet.

Rocky paths, unseen vines

 

I feel your hand

Slip away from mine.

A tiny smile,

One last time.

 

Wherever you are,

you’ll always be mine,

but even daisies,

 blow away sometimes.
