Daisy

After a long time,
I decide on the delicate daisy.
Pure and clean.
Carefully, I pick the flower
and together we embark on a journey.

We run.
The midsummer sun bakes the back of my neck.
Wind pushes through each strand of hair.

We jump.
The old wooden fence snags my t-shirt.
Dust and dirt land between my toes.

We are.

I sit under a big oak.
strong, tall, proud. Most importantly,
secure.
Not another soul to be seen.
The petals decrease in number
as I allow fate to fall in place.

The last white petal is caught in an updraft.
It hides in the dandelion fuzz dancing in the air.
With all the confusion, I forget
what the petal means.

I'll have to ask her.


to evolve

far away, comets crush lilac stars
their tracts of light forming islands of white
with smoke from my cigar

i watch these islands up above me
their coastlines blurred by solar humidity
reaching out to a sea fading from peach to violet

i feel the grasp of sand, stuck to summer sweat,
feel blasts of hot air and gasp for breath
then a salty sea breeze sucks the sting from sudden heat

i rest in shade, a deportee
sucking on the life of my country

some day this stormy island
will find its feet have reached water
and crawl off the beach.
There's only one thing we can do to thwart the plot of these albino shape-shifting lizard BITCHES!

^ I think I stupidly titled the thread something that obviously attracted pitters. It's really really odd. If ninja wants to start it again I'll delete this I guess.
