Being inspired by a daisy

It was only as I stooped to really look that I saw the colour.

Did you know that some daisies have this beautiful pink blush?

I didn’t…


If you want your mind to shrink,
if you want reality to shrivel
until it’s little more than a wrinkled bag
then revere nothing,
dwell only in the inorganic
and mechanical,
never bow before the immensity
of even the daisy,
on whose white wings
you will find
the fingerprints of God.
