Smiling flower
At my workplace
Joy in the clutter

Overfriendly salesman
Hogging the conversation
“Hey, there! Notice me!”

A double-elfchen written to participate in a poetry prompt from The Skeptic’s Kaddish W3 #54

An “Elfchen” has a set form of 11 words, the lines having 1-2-3-4-1 words, respectively. The first word is the topic and the final word is often a commentary or summary. The two elfchen are supposed to present opposing views.

Seriously, though — is there an opposite to Daffodil?

    1. Thanks, David. It was so hard for me to think of something opposing a daffodil. Daffodils don’t invade my space the way an over-zealous salesperson does. They simply exist — and, to me, they are the happiest flower.
