Plucking Daisies..... Sigh Relief...... - Poem by karen sinclair

Adored cherished as one Sistine chapel
In time memorial
Time has become but a painful itch
Which barrs which cuts and scars
I dont want a poxy
Scratched back
Stroked sordid lie
I dont want roses culled in their masses
For Tescos, from Asda
For some shitty supermarket shareholder to rub his palms together stroking green superficial paper.....no
I hope
Yeah dream for a daisy plucked in honesty
With thought, with due care
Just that effort of leaning down and plucking one pretty weed
Just for me
My world for a daisy,
My love for a dandelion
For a kiss that is truthfully felt
Not one poxy crappy kiss of obligation
Strangulated in gold
And certainly not one bunch of dead perfectly piled flora bunda
Suffocating in cellophane

    Something given with thought and love is far more appreciated than a gift wrapped in gold. Beautifully put! (Report) Reply

    You long for romance,
    for spontaneity,
    for the genuine
    and yet just one daisy
    does not make this true,
    only continuity and loyalty
    and your dream comes true.

    Where shall we find such convenience in the Concrete jungle? Flower exporting is a multi billion dollar business and many poor countries including India invested a lot and polluting their soil with fertilizers and pesticides to get the dollar and pound income..
    Karen, Your poem is written with good intention. I like it..

    Flowers should be left to grow under the sun - you may like to read mine entitled Pray Do Not Pick The Dafodills.
    Great write Karen.

    The gesture of a simple gift choosen without corporations and preconceived marketing ideas and flowers in dozens with rediculous markups as opposed to a single bud purposefully plucked providing a perfect posey present. Totally agree. Great stuff! (Report) Reply
