28 May: A Sevenling

one daisy growing in the gutter.

Where the Rain Falls

Up there on the north side
of the house where moss clings
emerald thick on the roof tiles,

and where the grey lead gutters
broaden into thirsty throats for rain
and sag from the pressing years,

I found a rebellious daisy growing.

    1. Thanks. Nearly missed yours. WordPress has gone a bit rebellious also – they put you in the spam drawer. Twits.

    1. They’ll do that, too. Better than dandelions, imo.

      1. Oh I always used to love to puff on dandelions. That’s how I learned to tell the time.

          1. One puff, one o’clock, two puffs, two… until the deanelion was spent. Never failed!
