Daisy Blumes

By: Barbara Matijevic

Bittersweetness prevails
As you set off your sails
Where a tumulus sea
once prevailed

Yet, here we are
With merely a scar.

Your breath is lighter
The world – brighter –
Days fly by . . .
You no longer wish to cry.

Treasuring the birds’ tweets,
The softness of your bedsheets.
As springtime blooms,
With Daisy perfumes.

You’re smiling . . .
             Reconciling –
You’re dancing . . .
             Romancing –

Your self esteem
– soaring –
As you adorn heavens crown.

There’s no need to run,
Put down the gun.

Life is worth living,
This is only the beginning.
