For Daisy

My best friend Daisy- well she was feeling down, a hug is powerful, ice cream even more so, but sometimes when words perfectly describe how you feel- you realise you're not alone. Luckily she did realise this in time!

a stalk so thin and tall
without leaves, alone
a delicate petal
and toward you- i groan

complaints about why,
how, when i became this way
wishes for you to flower, don't die
we prefer night, not day

you know me wholly, completely
i know as much as you dare to give
cell walls, chloroplasts, turgidity
what makes you die, what makes you live.

For Daisy 20th of Feb 2013 

The End
