The Nature of Flowers


They come out in the spring
need very little care
it’s part of their nature  
self-reliant

In fact they ask for none
might even grow unplanned
somewhat ubiquitous
wild in nature

You may think they’re aloof
or perhaps unfriendly
but on the contrary
they give out warmth

They have one specialty
draw smiles out of humans
just by looking at them
joy is their traits

They’re radiant in nature
their impact's vivacious
playful is their language
brighten our days

My choice of flower is Daisy. The poem is written in Abhanga.
