DAFFODILS

new daffodils

What is earth
mounded like a grave
above the daffodils?

The weight that turns man to dust
wields no power over a seed

In the darkness
it gathers strength

that in time
spiking through the earth

daffodils assert
the victory of life
over death.

  1. I love your comparison of the difference in what the weight of the earth does to the living as opposed to the dead. This is such an obvious observation that has never occurred to me. Thank you!!!
