Two Daisies

Acrylic on primed canvas panel – 9″ × 12″ - unframed

Two daisies from my garden in a blue bottle on my kitchen table.

Bright flowers, whose home is everywhere
Bold in maternal nature’s care
And all the long year through the heir
Of joy and sorrow,
Methinks that there abides in thee
Some concord with humanity,
Given to no other flower I see
The forest through.
- William Wordsworth, To the Daisy

Where Creation keeps its own slow time

My mind is at ease in Africa 
Where the people still live close to the soil 
And the seasons mark my changing moods 
Where the markets hustle with trading 
And Creation keeps its own slow time

Petals fall

A rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind. 
- Clive Bell

Flower petals fall one by one
After the long day is done 
This flower has lived a good life 
With very little strife 
Memories of busy bees 
And images of little hands fingering it lovingly 
A lover’s purpose was in mind 
When it was picked from the vine 
Given to the one he loved 
As a token of all the things they’ve done 
Drooping low in the vase 
Is where it takes its resting place 
As its petals fall one by one 
One by one
