How The Daisy Came To Be The Daisy

“Of all the flowers, there is not one that is dark in color,” Snake said to himself.

With that in mind, Snake set out to look for things that would be dark. He found mud and the blood of a wounded bird.

He mixed the mud with his poison and the blood with dead leaves.

When he finished, he let the mixtures sit. They sat and they sat and they sat, until snake finally thought they were ready.

Then, he used his tail to pain the flowers; the mud mixture in the middle and the blood mixture on the outside, for the petals.

Snake painted many flowers. He did not think of a name for them yet, so as the flowers he made sat and sat and sat, he thought of a name for his creation.

“They are so dark, that I shall call them Drakuls,” Snake decided.

With the name Drakuls chosen, Snake set out to find his flowers, but when he found them, they were not dark like he thought.

The flowers Snake made were bright, bright yellow to be exact.

“How horrific!” Snake exclaimed when he saw what happened.

“How lovely!” Mother Nature exclaimed, from her perched position in a large tree.

She came down and the two sat, looking at the flowers.

“How could this have happened?” Snake asked.

“The sun works in wondrous ways, Snake,” Mother Nature replied.

“I curse the sun and the brightness of its rays. For they brightened the petals I wanted red.”

“It is not the sun's fault,” Mother Nature reasoned, “but your own, that the petals are yellow. You are the one who put the flowers out to dry in the light.”

Mother Nature then picked Snake's flowers from the ground.

“Because they are so beautiful and bright, I shall call them daisies. I thank you greatly, Snake, for giving the world the daisy,” Mother Nature said.

With that final word, Mother Nature traveled around the world, planting daisies and telling others of how Snake created them.
