A Delicate Dare

Their small heads

Rise proud

In mid-trail.

Delicate and fierce

They stretch their

Full miniature scale.

The risk they take

Of being

Stepped on,

Dwarfed by delicious


To sun.

      • Anthemis, chamomile, same family as mayweed. Conium, hemlock; gosh, I should have recognised that one; I suppose I generally rely on the purple-blotched stem and the leaves for identification. A great collection of wild flowers.

      • You know your stuff!!!
        I know the common wild-flowers and can identify some of them (and used to be a lot better at it in high-school where my major was biology and we needed to learn botany, among other things), but I am not close to this kind of fluency as you. ๐Ÿ™‚
        It was a lovely hike that day. I was vising with family and the weather was pleasant and the winter had been rainier than usual so that the fields were blooming with wild flowers. It was delightful. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I feature a lot of wild flowers on my blog (seldom the cultivated variety). I find the smaller flower, seemingly delicate, deceptively strong. Wild flowers are survivors; garden flowers must be nurtured and protected. I’m sure there is a message there for us all.

      • Indeed it is!
        Also, will be checking out more of the wild flowers on your blog. … I’m with you on preferring the wild variety to the cultivated one. Not that cultivated flowers aren’t sometimes gorgeous, but I gravitate toward wild ones (and I like to keep them where they grow …).
