Gerbera Daisy

      red blossoms surround
the yellow gerbera daisy.

like a thistle in a rose,

      this is no incursion.
red and yellow colours
   are distinct,

with nothing intruding
where it should not be.


no perfect solutions
      exist in this world.

that could be boring.


but on the other side
   of a crusty coin,
(many needless tears)

      we see an ugly face.
and thats the face of war.

usually wars are messy,
      boys killing boys.

   families in distress.
widows and orphans.

sometimes fools walk in...
   we can do much better.
