Daffodil

From Clean Canvas, published in 2018.

Daffodil
I feel an idea
a need
a certainty of
it will happen
so that I
begin
to push my way up
to something
from where I am
I want to go
from here to there
I’ve been a root
a bulb
potential
lived off stored-up starch
I’ve held back
been held back
waited
did not know
Now I want to try
be daffodil
and bloom

  1. Every year I feel revived by daffodils and I reflect on what they have to do to keep appearing every year. It’s really quite a feat if you ask me.
