Arnica Montana

I don my sunshine
suit before dawn to
dance in a whorl

of golden petal, in
great gratitude, to
celebrate you, glory!

Potent anti-inflammatory,
you heal wounds and
mitigate pain.

Your sugar pills
reduce fever, protect
against infection.

Your gel soothes
swelling and bruising,
You swirl yellow orange.

Perennial mountain daisy,
day’s eye, eye
of the sun—


Penn Kemp
Canadian poet, novelist, playwright, and sound poet residing in London Ontario, Canada

From the mundane to the magical!
