Author's Note

Richard
It's not my usual marathon, but I was told by a very thoughtfully caring and wise friend that fewer words, more often, say just the right amount.

"Daisies" a drawing, compliments of Pinterest.

Always, well-intended critique and comments are warmly welcomed! : )

WELL...I love daisies so this was delightful poem for me to read! I love that it's short and sweet! I have a hard time writing short pieces like this!
Very powerful for its length,as well as enjoyable to read! I like a rhyme...it's got it all!

The ability to layer meaning on such a small canvas is a gift indeed. The tradition of picking daisy pedals, the name, and the floral metaphor.

You use some original rhyme.. Clever use of words that appeal.

Simple floral poetic quatrain at its most delicate … very pleasant! Your write does provoke the little greys cells into action – as this reader discovered! In the west, the daisy is a symbol of simplicity, chastity and transformation. We see that message repeated in Christianity, where the daisy is a sacred symbol of Virgin Mary signifying her chastity, grace and purity. :-)

Mythology of expression -sweet and tender..soft.
Presentation- beautifully presented with a sweet and simple picture of daisies. Fits the poem.
Assonance "o"..as in God,flower, containing.
Consonance - "s" final consonant in wondrous, stars,builds and memoirs.
Alliterations-maybe builds, beckons and bends?
Metaphor -''containing love's special power''
Line breaks - "bend and pick it"..perfect break as I think of the action..
Syntax- smooth as silk
juxtaposition - "wondrous flower patterned from god's heavenly stars."

This is just a sweet little poem....I love daisies too. :-)

Yes, as You said a very thoughtful friend, I also believe sometimes the few words hold the great power, like saying (I love You), there is nothing to be said after or needed to be said, the mind knows well all the words which lay behind this one sentence.

I always felt that some people don't give justice to daises, in spring they spread the world with soft child-like beauty, but it's like people are used to see them, so it's like a normal thing to them... they leave them kind of neglected, it's sad... Your poem said it all, in few lines, yes your lines are few but VERY perfect and have this tender soft real power of daises, I very much like the wonderment You left us with in the next verse, almost like I'm surrounded by daises each beckon at me with a lovely thought, a lovely feeling and sweet smile...

Thank You dear Syr for keeping sharing Your amazing Art with all of us.
