daisies raising faces to a star-spilled sky



go ahead, please.
keep the world at bay
while i bray at this moon.
the sky’s got a crazy way
of healing me at center,
a tune that’s set to stun –
the only one that can
uncrumple my petaled skin
and wild my heart.

    I love those daisies and stars mirroring each other, De, enjoyed the internal and end rhymes in:
    ‘keep the world at bay
    while i bray at this moon.
    the sky’s got a crazy way’,
    and the idea of uncrumpling petaled skin and wilding a heart!

  9. :the only one that can
    uncrumple my petaled skin
    and wild my heart.

    such an eloquent plea, yearning, poem.

    Daisies uplifted faces to the star filled sky…..braying loudly…..
    a comfort in the sky….be it night or day…..a healing power that can help me center, accept my petaled skin, uncrumple it, never mind the aging petals, and let me feel wild. That’s how I read this and I love it!

  13. msjadeli says:

    “keep the world at bay while i bray” such a cool line

  14. Wild is magnificent as a verb… wild my heart should be the title of a song.

  15. Yvonne Osborne says:

    A solid little poem.

  16. Love, “wild my heart “.
