Sky Of Daisies - Poem by Karen GonzalezVidela

I stare above this six foot ground
and see live daisies spring to life.
How much I have missed that sky,
with its welcoming blue,
arising me in the mornings,
wrapping me tight at nights.
I have missed its breeze in the cool dawn
beautiful even on a cloudy afternoon.
But please don't get me wrong,
as I have always looked from the ground,
but how I have loved that sky
that never saw me as lower than itself.
And I stared up today
looking for a patch of blue,
but found myself disappointed
when daisies instead covered my heart.
They wrapped around my arms,
and contrasted with what I once saw
as a compassionate ghost sent for me alone.
I looked for my dear patch of sky
but none of its color remained with me.
As under as I could ever get,
I looked under my feet for these daisies' roots,
but froze when there were none below.
That sky I had missed for so long
lay underneath terrifying daisies
that had non the least sprung from myself.
