Daffodil on Waking
written by: Joyce Butler
A light rain kissed my face even though my head was bowed low at the nape.
I couldn't look up, my sisters neither, we still had yet to greet each other.
A cold frightening winter of strange winds blowing us about, determined to shake us through our roots leaving us dying of a stabbing frost.
But March brought a more forgiving sun so we held hands again, raising our heads out from worry and fear.
Now, we look into the sun's ranging eyes again.
I was shortlisted for the Atlantis Short Story Prize 2015 and I've written the first draft of a book.
