With each passing minute
I unfurl and greet the day.
I am here.
Blessings as I expose myself fully.
My open stature beckons examination
As the beauty within is revealed.
Loves Me/Loves Me Not
Oh, ox-eye daisy! Tell me of fortune today!
With sorrow, I destroy your beauty revealing my fate.
But I must know – does he love me?
From the buried bulbs
Appear dizzying rainbow fields
