Wildflower Girls

The wildflower girls
live in a land
where it's always summertime
They swim in crystal waters
and sleep in the trees they climb
They put daisies in their tresses
and wear white cotton dresses
dirt stained at the hem.

They drinks honeysuckle juice
like water
and nature is their muse
They run barefoot
with callused feet from
too many summers
without shoes

And when the stars awaken
they dance and twirl around
They listen to the crickets' melody
and tiptoe gracefully
across the ground
They drink in the cool night air
and whisper goodnight
to creatures everywhere
as they slip into a dreamless sleep

When the sun rises
they watch with wonder in their eyes
All nature is hushed
like a prayer
as they watch the sacred
fire lit sky

They start off on
new adventures
when days are new and young
as they soak in imagination
like we soak in the sun

They see beauty in all
with their rose colored eyes
in the land
where pain is forgotten
and summer never dies

(a poem I wrote on a whim)
p.s. I guest posted for Bonnie

  12. this took me away.
    like the feeling you get when you read a storybook and almost forget whats around you, the bittersweet feeling when the words end with a simple period and the mind has to exist again.

  14. Eve, this is such a good poem. You have a real gift.

    If you put your poetry in a book (accompanied by your beautiful photography, naturally) I would buy one hundred copies of it because it would be just that good.

  18. Hey! How are you doing? I just wanted to let you know that I have decided to make/sell blog buttons.
    I was inspired by Miss Shelby's new blog "Every Bit Of Lovely". ( everybitoflovely13.blogspot.com) Her blog is so colorful
    and cheerful that I decided to make a button for it. It was really fun and it's actually on her blog now. ( I'll send the
    picture to you guys at the end of this for you to see.) Anyways, Lately I have been trying to think of different ways to
    raise a little bit of money and this is one that not only helped me raise some but is also a lot of fun. So, I looked online and
    to buy a blog button was about 20 to 25 dolloars or so. Now, I'm not a professional or anything and if you ask me, that's a
    little much. So I'm going to be selling the buttons for 5 dollars each. I'll have a page on my blog soon ( Digital Diary)
    but you guys can just email me if you want one. What it will be is, I'll have you answer a few questions like the color
    you want, pattern, anything special, etc. Once you answer those I'll make your button and send it to you. If you don't
    like it or you want something a little different then I'd gladly change it for you. Once I email it to you, you would send
    me 5 dollars in the mail. Also, If you want to buy like three or more for maybe one for you and suprise your friends with
    some, give it to them to be nice, for there birthday ect. Then I'll give you a better deal.So, how does that sound? Please
    tell your friends and I would love it if you would share it on your blogs! (If you do then please let me know and I'll
    check it out!) Thanks! Hopefully I can get a few orders.


    Have a blessed day everyone!
