please keep off the grass
says the black and white sign –
but daisies can’t read
PS. One of the interesting things about the common daisy is that if you tread on it – it bounces back…

This is great, Rachael, as it conjures up images of beauty rising up out of the bland ‘normality’. It also has a little poke at the red-tape regulations which seek to control our lives. Excellent!
Thanks, Chris! More pokes on the way 🙂
I love this one!
Thought you might! Thanks 🙂
WordPress needs a love button for this one 🙂
So good it hit the spot, Laine 🙂
Reblogged this on A Poet's Journey and commented:
So simple and lovely…
Delightful whimsy, Rachael. Issa would have been proud if he had written this one. 😛
Thanks Ron. I shall have to check this Issa fella out then…
Later : I have done so. He had me in stitches. Funny and irreverent and highly entertaining. Loved it 🙂
Wow, I had no idea about the daisy’s resilience–that’s inspiring!
Yes. It’s a pity we chop their heads off 🙂
I should have added that it makes them grow back even stronger 🙂
Okay, I feel better now!
Ha! Love all of this, especially the wise daisies setting an example for us humans both in their resilience and their generosity in spreading beauty and joy. Didn’t know daisies are so resilient–thanks for that, as well. Shine on, Rachael. xoxo
I shall teach my daisies how to shimmer… xxx
Excellent, Rachael, and a great example of your wry humor. And who would really want to keep daisies off the grass, anyway? They’re such happy flowers. They look like they’re smiling. I love the little factoid you shared about them–such resilience!
Thanks, Miranda. The haiku worked! I presume you good people across the pond are as obsessive as we are about decapitating them regularly..
Rock on daisy chains:-)
Here in my area, people wage more of a war on dandelions, which is a shame because they’re also bright and cheerful, and the bees love them.
Made my day then 🙂
Hi Rachael – I am changing my blog, and have decided instead of reblogging that I will begin to post poetry on A Poet’s Journey facebook page. I just wanted you to know that I posted this poem there. Laine
Thank you, Laine. It’s a privilege to be included. All the best for the changes you’re planning. X
