While lounging in my duster* watching news, I have my morning coffee. When I'm through, I wash my cup and saucer and admire their elegance and pleasing shade of blue. Like other lovely things I own--handbags, Americana wreaths, and jewelry-- my dusters, cups, and saucers all came from the popular Blue Daisy Company. ************************ Blue daisy plants don't flourish where I live; and, even if they did, they wouldn't thrive for me. I'm death to flowers! So I have the artificial ones. They look alive! Most of my rooms are graced with vases of these blue silk beauties that appeal to my calm, meditative side or to my sense of whimsy. Then they make me smile and sigh. *housedress written June 18, 2017, and entered in Mystic Rose's Blue Daisy Contest

Didn't it win , Janice. I am seeing lots of really pretty ones that were not on her list. I know I sound like sour grapes, but I prefer the non premium contests!!! So many great poems get left out in the premium contests. This one is unique and I love your enjambment in it.
