The Lone Daisy #poetry #photography #death

lone daisy

The lone daisy

reminds me of her sunny smile

tender heart that won mine

The lone daisy

a radiant warmth

embracing love’s time

The lone daisy

shines a cheerful glow

day our son came home

The lone daisy

like a pencil in her ear

kind words for those alone

The lone daisy

picked too soon

death gives no reason

The lone daisy

settles on her grave

we apart for a short season

These words are tearfully written in tribute to a  woman (Jaye Lynn) who died much too soon. And for a husband (Chris Wood) who looks for sonshine in the little things.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Leslie, Daisies were most certainly Jaye Lynn’s favorite flower…. and it is so fitting and special that you would choose that flower to represent her heart and life. Your words are so comforting and true to her inner warmth and glow! Thanks so very much for this tribute…..and she was for sure such a great mom and partner in life.

    Grace to us today, Chris


    1. The first part of The Villa of Reduced Circumstances is about a German professor who is toltlay baffled by the English manner and sense of humor when he goes on a fellowship to Cambridge University.. The book gets zanier when he goes to Columbia to accept an Honorary Membership from the Columbian Academy of Arts and Letters. You might enjoy listening to the audio tape of this book, as I did, while driving. Its by Alexander MacQueen. (not sure of author’s name) the author who wrote a series of books about The First Ladies Detective Agency.
