the garden riots daisies hustle for sunbeams amongst dew-flushed buttercups the mower idles clutching its oil-spattered dreams of smallness, calm and order

Beware the menace of the mower! Sinister paradigm of CONTROL!

And as ever, its lust for power is disguised as benevolence! Thanks Geoffrey :-)

I like the contrast of riots and order - such is the balancing act of life!

Methinks you really captured the essence of what it means to do sedoka. Not sure I did with mine!! (I entered an oldie) Love the descriptiveness of yours.

Great work!!! I like the perspective from the daisies and mowers, two opposing elements, of nature and machines.

Thank you very much Vincent. I’m really glad the two perspectives came across. It was hard to do in so few syllables :-)
