I knew I wanted to do a flower story, but too many have been done about a rose and other more popular flowers. So I just let my mind roamed on the internet and found out something about Marigolds that I thought was interesting.
"Marigold water was thought to induce psychic dreams of fairies..."
I immediately thought, well this certainly has some psychedelic potential for a story.
So here it is, a flower/fairy story for a Monday. I hope it puts a smile on your face as it did mine as I wrote it.

10/28/2013 (Monday)- Herb of the Sun
Marigold met me by my door, her bright copper face a glowing. She asked me about my writing, if my stories were still a flowing. I answered as politely as one can to a talking, smiling flower.
“It’s hard finding stories, I fear I’m running dry.” I shared as water bounced off her pretty petal eyes.
Ah, well since you’re so sweet to me, a gift for you I have.
She bid me come closer, as she kissed each eyelid mine. The day colors were brighter, at night each star had a different twinkling shine…
… and dreamed of copper fairies.
