A buttercup stands

A buttercup stands on the grass 

pretty petals sing of joy 

and sunshine shines from the circle of friendship around her loving centre 

petals of happiness rest on the green steady stem 

a grounding place for her joy to tenderly live 


a buttercup stands on the grass 

her petals sit like soft sand 

shining with a vibrant tone 

strength in joy

a circle of many merry singing petals 

made of soft sand , shining stars and pieces of smiling sunshine 


she stands sweetly with a love for the green grass 

and a keen eye on the blue blanket of sky 

grounded with a refreshing tone by her side 

and bluebells saying hello from above

    It made me smile to think of the bluebells hanging upside down looking down at the buttercup. The buttercup reminded me of someone I know too.
