Drifting Daisies (Poem)

drifting_daises

Drifting daisies never dally

Lingering within love’s alley

Carefree couples there will sally

Holding hands as years of yore

-

Whispered wishes of tomorrow

Far away from fears and sorrow

Secrets from a daisy borrow

Holding hands that yearn for more

-

Daring dreams that do come true

Soulful stars that show the way

Dazzled by how daisies play

Drifting toward our rendezvous

-

Happy heart that hold a notion

Casting kisses cause commotion

On a daisy’s dancing motion

Holding hands as dreams explore

-

Mystic music springs of wonder

Longing lovers set a sunder

Bed which daisies soon fell under

Holding hands as passions sore

-

Daring dreams they do display

Draped in fragrant flowers’ dew

Darling daises shade their view

Drifting through another day

-

Drifting daisies did surrender

To a time which turned so tender

Memories which would not end their

Holding hands and youth restore

This image caught my attention-

"Daring dreams that do come true

Soulful stars that show the way

Dazzled by how daisies play"...

To me, I read we have the yearning of meeting and bridging the unknown with the known; and spirituality with our earthy groundedness.
