plucked in testing of -

Really like the impression of "love's ardour' here...

I loved the daisies and the honeysuckle threaded through your poems.

love's ardor
it's either yes or no
petal by petal

Riveting imagery!!

Adelaide said...

Apparently, this is a game of French origin. With 11 petals you can determine the outcome by choosing "loves me" or "loves me not" as the first line.

loves me, loves me not one is always hopeful for a positive outcome.

Interesting shift in perspective--in the original each petal feels like a story being released, in the more recent poem I'm left with the impression that love itself is being (almost mechanically) put to the test.

Plucking daisy petals can be an interesting way to get to the truth...or not...

Susan said...

They do fall. I, hopefully, will not! (I'm too old for the games.)

Picking petals saying: she loves me, she loves me not was a bit of a risk as it was even money chance either would win. It was far better to have a buttercup place just under the chin and if you liked butter (with a yellow reflection) you were a match!

The falling of daisy petals is such a comforting image somehow. A lovely haiku, Gillena! :-)

I enjoyed both of these, Gillena - though the second piece, with its whimsical hope of a test for 'loves ardour' had an enchanting young-love innocence to it that was so charming pinned to a simple daisy (which, for some reason, I think of in terms of youth).
