Crested Jewel

Crested Jewel

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

a daisy

"

The expanse of its shadow looms across blades of grass


That mighty oak now even larger with its shadow

skirted about it.


Shading an assortment of greens, layout before my sight.


One lone daisy peers through the boarding shades of green.


Twinkling between a bare branch, streaming in the light.


Like a crested jewel on a sunbeam, it sits center stage.


I ponder its beauty, both simple, and grand.


As I notice, a lady bug doing the same.

The Daisy, such a careless flower, has no idea of importance and stands alone within the field, yet, growth is what guides her, thus leaving one beautiful daisy.

Humble daisy or rarest orchid, each is as beautiful as the other and we can only ever imitate nature, never surpass it.

Nothing more lovely than a dew kissed field of daisies.

Beccy.
