May you always recall the day we met

Mid month in June; my skies were so hazy

Of all flowers blooming, you could beget

You only saw me; an oxeye daisy

***

Simple and free like a breath of fresh air

My petals stood tall withstanding the rain

All weeds around me caused not one despair

Rooted in rich soil, combating the grain

***

With your ginger fingers and berry lips

You held me constant like a kiss of gold

Wedding bells rang causing flower eclipse

Planting seeds of morrow; low and behold

***

The most precious bud is said quite often

Under your nose; your senses must soften

I am a seasoned hospitality professional and aspiring writer. I especially love poetry and experimenting with different styles. My inspiration comes from personal life events and I am known to root for the "underdog." I am 49 years young.
