Daisy and Wild Rose

wild rose n daisy

A daisy and a wild rose

Were growing, side by side,

But which was more significant,

They couldn’t quite decide.

Said Wild Rose to Daisy,

“You’re tall and so alive,

You’re petals are so bountiful,

While I have only five.”

“But you’re the symbol of true love,

And me, just righteousness,

And you’re a lovely shade of pink

While I am colorless.”

Well, if you wonder if you’re loved,

Only the daisy knows,

But if you wonder what love is,

A rose is a rose is a rose.

as one


a new morning breaks

the clouds are undone

the spirit awakes

the flight has begun

the dark of night ending

we all are as one

ascending and blending

into the sun

In Character

elf reading

when I see myself

as a character in a book

a wonderful transition

takes place

life’s up and downs

are only little twists

in the plot to keep

the book entertaining


I would buy this book
