daisy roar

she boasts a mane, after
all, the right to call
sun to center. white
-petalled promises with up
-roarious squalls of lovesme,
lovesmenot. we’ve got
her in our fists, given her
too much power. spent
hours hoping over flowered
phrase, faces sky raised,
praying to soar.

    Some gentle/gentile roaring her; nice closing lines. Good choice for the prompt.

    Wonderful. The power of a daisy to be the decider. “-roarious squalls of lovesme,
    lovesmenot.”
    This brings back childhood memories for me.

    Now you’ve mentioned it, De, daisies do look like little cartoon lions. I imagine their roars might sound like purrs to us. I love the lines:
    ‘…petalled promises with up
    -roarious squalls of lovesme,
    lovesmenot…’

    I love – the right to call – a powerful and carefully understated response to loves possibility.

  10. What a though of a roaring daisy… but of course with all those promises of holding the truth when you pull the petals from them I can only imagine how they cry.

  11. Sabio Lantz says:

    Cute poetic praise of the daisy and our hopes

  12. I like this so much – captures the whole wild belief structure of childhood that lingers, ever lingers far into adulthood. If I were a daisy I’d love this tribute- especially those opening lines.

    OK, if this is “De running on fumes,” then I want a whiff. The usual terrific alliteration and enjambment, but mostly ” the right to call / sun to center” That is strong and clean.
