petals are like

Like diamonds,
even prettier
than ever.
Like a

giving light
to the room.
Like stars,

The crisp,
green leaves
are like

Like deep,
green eyes
staring right
at yours.

    Dear Rachel,
    I think your poem is lovely. I was looking for a poem or verse about daisies to write in a birthday card for my cousin. The card is a beautiful photograph of daisies in close-up. I have written out your poem inside and of course told her where it came from. I thought your poem would be the one she would enjoy most out of all the ones I found.
    Thank you very much, I hope you continue writing.
    Best wishes from Christine Bruinewoud

    Great poem, Rachel. What a wonderful idea, to compare a flower to a disco ball. Who doesn’t love a disco ball? Your poem is fine and delicate, and is worthy of the daisey you describe so tenderly.
