Drifting Daisies (Poem)

Updated on March 23, 2017

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.
