I'm still on a Hiatus, but I am really bad at it, so I thought I would share this little poem with you all:)

Dying Daisies

what are we but dying daisies? 

oh, holy one, one who is whole,
leave me without petals. I'm only
a yellow center ripe with pollen 
that has not yet become honey.

    short and sweet, yet far from "simple". the layers of metaphors and nuances are gorgeous!
