it’s a daisy day!

NaPoWriMo day 25


happy happy daisy day, baby

it’s a new day, a new way

take off shoes and socks, wriggle toes and feet

you can’t squash us, we give freely of our sweet

profusion of daisy love and innocence

carpets your steps towards limitless

from now on, hon, each tiny central golden sun

will remind you, petal, you’ve only just begun


so happy happy daisy day, in a clear daze, honey

sit amongst us, let us and grass tickle your tummy

you’ll find your laugh, your smile

in a a very little daisy while


Freya sits beside ya, sister

fragrant silent listener


btw April 25 2021

not a haiku


daisy: slang term for some thing good


daisies symbolize innocence and purity


stems from an old Celtic legend, God sprinkled daisies over the earth to cheer people from grief.


In Norse mythology, the daisy is Freya’s sacred flower

Freya first brought art to the Gods and to the world. She is the goddess of everything feminine…love, beauty, sex, fertility, gold


Our prompt for today (optional, as always) is to write an “occasional” poem. What’s that? Well, it’s a poem suited to, or written for, a particular occasion.
