A crown of flowers

A crown of flowers

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

Behind our sand dune

I found pink daisies

But I had to cross

the river mouth

For smiling orange poppies

Towards the cliffs

I found six shades of green

One more color

Played hide-and-seek

Until the incoming tide

Whispered, check the cave -

Knee-deep in foamy waves

Yellow beach sunflowers

Jumped into my basket �"

The color palette now complete,

At last I can craft

Your crown of flowers.
