Why

I shall die before
I have seen most flowers
known to mankind
but all I need to have seen
are the daisies
in the chain you put in my hair.
They should be enough to
last me a lifetime.

Yet I bought a vase today.

  1. That last line created an ambiguity to the piece. Is anything really enough?

  2. Enough here to reflect upon for hours. Thanks, Ina.

  3. Toned down expectations and appreciation for what we have – well illustrated here and point well taken.

  4. Daisies are a fine choice for favorite…

  5. It all comes back to the simple things … and yet we have to remind ourselves again and again. Lovely, Ina.
