Tiny strips of white, like the little pointing fingers
of a ghostly child, like the sparks of magnesium touching a flame.
I cannot touch the daisies. They cower from me.
My darkness would block out their purity.
A miniature sun peeks out, it is shy.
They have no self esteem but I do not think them common.
They’re merely plentiful. Plentiful pearls –
millions of little saints watching over the green.
I could never bring myself to pick them.
It would be murder, their beauty would die.
They are all that I am not, or could ever be.
I plead with the daisies but they still fear me.
They call them ‘day’s eye’, is it any more than a name?
Can they truly see me, those delicate creatures?
If they should, I would understand their timidity.
I’m half-crazy really, overflowing.
Truly I am too frightful for them.
They never deserved my callousness from the start.
Previously appeared on Creekwalker in 2010.
An art print of the author Daphne Du Maurier with a quote from her best known Gothic novel ‘Rebecca’:
“If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.”
