Petal Pullers

my pet daisy is dying

lil’ petals curling black


~she loves me~

does she not?

brave face fading

despite cater-pillars bracing her

there is nothing to be done

and love pulling her

to save her…


she’s a sweet pet,

honey bees needing her

no bark and no bite,


and I wonder if I should

bury her all the same,

so she can push herself up


finding new life. . .
